63. The concept of modes of operation (user mode, system mode) was introduced withTime-sharing-systemSimple batch systemMultiprogrammed batch systemSerial processing64. The principal objective of the time-sharing system is to65. The processor was often idle waiting for the I/O instruction to conclude. To overcome the problem the following approach was introduced: when one job needs to wait for I/O, the processor can switch to the other job. This was a

'Lost signals, duplicate signals received'. This is73. 'Two or more programs hung up waiting for each other'. This is74. 'When programs share memory and their execution is interleaved by the processor, they may interfere with each other by overwriting common memory
areas in unpredictable ways. The results of a particular program depend on the activities of other programs in a shared system'. This is
