How to design a RF PA ( from my resume ) may not be applicable to others and same for LNA.

Block diagram of full Transceiver Module ( Transmit and Receive Chain including antenna and BPF with switch is expected ) After drawing it, questions related to sensitivity of RX chain , it's derivation with equation and after that a mathematical problem , was expected to find the final receiver sensitivity or noise floor to be specific for certain frequency band. After that question related to noise and small signal modeling and how to change gm of a Mosfet to reduce noise floor of previous question . Was expected to draw and complete small Signal modeling and then noise modeling and explain the situation .
