A high priority process will always run before a low priority process. If there always have high priority processes (comes and goes), the low priority processes will never be scheduled they will experience starvation. For the above scheduling algorithms, only SPF and MLFQ may suffer with starvation as they have the priority policy in used; while FIFO and RR do not have the starvation issue as all processes are scheduled as according to their arrival order. Question 2 (4 points) (a) We should obtain x = 6 only in both processes as the variable x is not shared by the two processes.
