# MCQs in Frequency Modulation

Multiple Choice Questions in Frequency Modulation from the book Electronic Communication Systems by George Kennedy. Make sure to familiarize each and every questions

This is the Multiple Choice Questions in Chapter 5: Frequency Modulation from the book Electronic Communication Systems by George Kennedy. If you are looking for a reviewer in Communications Engineering this will definitely help. I can assure you that this will be a great help in reviewing the book in preparation for your Board Exam. Make sure to familiarize each and every questions to increase the chance of passing the ECE Board Exam.

### Begin and Good luck!

Choose the letter of the best answer in each questions.

1. In the stabilize reactance modulator AFC system,

• a. the discriminator must have a fast time constant to prevent demodulation
• b. the higher the discriminator frequency, the better the oscillator frequency stability
• c. the discriminator frequency must not be too low, or the system will fail
• d. phase modulation is converted into FM by the equalizer circuit

2. In the spectrum of a frequency-modulated wave

• a. the carrier frequency disappears when the modulation index is large
• b. the amplitude of any sideband depends on the modulation index
• c. the total number of sidebands depends on the modulation index
• d. the carrier frequency cannot disappear

3. The difference between phase and frequency modulation

• a. is purely theoretical because they are the same in practice
• b. is too great to make the two system compatible
• c. lies in the poorer audio response of phase modulation
• d. lies in the different definitions of the modulation index

4. Indicate the false statement regarding the Armstrong modulation system

• a. The system is basically phase, not frequency modulation,
• b. AFC is not needed, as crystal oscillator is used.
• c. Frequency multiplication must be used
• d. Equalization is unnecessary

5. An FM signal with a modulation index mf is passed through a frequency tripler. The wave in the output of the tripler will have a modulation index of

• a. mf/3
• b. mf
• c. 3mf
• d. 9mf

6. An FM signal with a deviation Î´ is passed through a mixer, and has its frequency reduced fivefold. The deviation in the output of the mixer is

• a. 5Î´
• b. Indeterminate
• c.Î´/5
• d. Î´

7. A pre-emphasis circuit provides extra noise immunity by

• a. boosting the bass frequencies
• b. amplifying the higher audio frequencies
• c. preamplifying the whole audio band

8. Since noise phase-modulates the FM wave, as the noise sideband frequency approaches the carrier frequency, the noise amplitude

• a. remains constant
• b. is decreased
• c. is increased

• c. frequency modulation
• d. any of the three

10. Indicate which one of the following is not an advantage of FM over AM:

• a. Better noise immunity is provided
• b. Lower bandwidth is required
• c. The transmitted power is more useful
• d. Less modulating power is required

11. One of the following is an indirect way of generating FM. This is the

• a. reactance FET modulator
• b. varactor diode modulator
• c. Armstrong modulator
• d. reactance bipolar transistor modulator

12. In an FM stereo multiplex transmission, the

• a. sum signal modulates 19 kHz subcarrier
• b. difference signal modulates the 19 kHz subcarrier
• c. difference signal modulates the 38 kHz subcarrier
• d. difference signal modulates the 67 kHz subcarrier
