    Q: Explain the effects of each scaling on MOSFET in every aspect with reasoning.
    Q: Definitions of Setup Time and Hold Time. Reasons behind setup and hold time.
    Q: Write Verilog code to generate a clock with 70% duty cycle.
     Q: Give duty cycle of clock for these Verilog codes:
        i. always
          begin
              #70 clk=0;
             #30 clk=1;
          End
        ii. always
          begin
              #70 clk<=0;
             #30 clk<=1;
          End
       iii. always

    Q: Given a router having a data of 2GB. It has 4 output buses of size 32-bit each. The router has to send its data one by one on each of the four buses such that the first destination gets first 128 bits, 2nd destination gets the next 128 bits and so on in a cyclic manner. Write a pseudocode for the same.
    Q: Explain the difference between fork-join, fork-join any, fork-join none.
    Q: Explain the functions and difference between $monitor, $display; $stop, $finish.
