Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which word, used to describe a task in computing or the purchase of something, is fractured below? TRENDS ACK SHOWN

Answer: Transaction

A transaction is defined as an exchange of payment for a good or an asset, although in computing terms, the word is used to describe work done in a database management system. The deadlock is explained with two transactions. One of them uses a lock in row 1, and the other in row 2. Since they both need what the other is using to finish their tasks, the action is impossible to perform, causing a deadlock.
2. A deadlock needs to happen between two or more mechanisms. Which word can either describe that, or an agreement between two people? MOO TO OWL

Answer: Mutual

One of the conditions needed for a deadlock to happen is called "mutual exclusion". This means that only one of the processes can use a given resource, while the other must wait for it to finish, and viceversa. The word "mutual" represents something reciprocal.
3. Which word, fractured below, describes something that collects information and organizes it? THAT AB ACE

Answer: Database

A database organizes data so that computers can select information quickly. A transactional database, which is able to reverse actions if they are not performed correctly, is great to explain the deadlock, since when two processes are executing at the same time, they both must wait for the other to finish.

This database will kill one of the transactions in case of a deadlock, which will be the one that made less work than the other.
4. Which word describes the field where deadlocks usually happen, concurrent _____________? BROGUE RUM MINK

Answer: Programming

Also known as concurrent computing, concurrent programming is a paradigm that involves computations being executed simultaneously. Deadlocks fit into this form of computing since both actions happen at the same time, but can't be finished because they are waiting for each other.
5. Which kind of wait, which you could relate to a spherical shape, is a condition for a deadlock to happen? SEER QUEUE LORE

Answer: Circular

Any circular process describes a cycle, based on the shape of a circle. The term "circular wait" refers to the fact that both processes are waiting for the other to end, so it is a never-ending cycle.
6. Which word defines what both processes need in a deadlock to continue executing, or supplies and assets? REESE OAR SAYS

Answer: Resources

In a deadlock, both actions require resources that the other has, making both impossible to finish. Resources are normally defined as supplies or capabilities.
7. Which two-word term is a type of detection technique for a deadlock? MOW DELL SHAKING

Answer: Model checking

Model checking is the action of making sure a system complies with certain requirements. With model checking, the user can perform an analysis on the system, which will determine if there is a deadlock happening.
8. Which word is another word to describe a task? BROW SIS

Answer: Process

Processes are the base of deadlocks, since when two or more of these are using resources that the other needs, neither process will be completed. In a computer, for example, many processes are executed at the same time.
9. Even though deadlocks normally apply to computing, they can be explained with real life situations. Which food, named after John Montagu, could be used to explain the deadlock? SENT WE ITCH

Answer: Sandwich

A sandwich is a food that consists of two slices of bread and a filling, which can be made of a variety of items like cheese, ham and meat. It was named after the 4th Earl of the English town of Sandwich, Kent, John Montagu.

The deadlock can be explained with two people trying to make a sandwich. One takes the bread and the other a knife. They both need what the other person has to continue their activities, making both impossible to happen.
10. A good way to explain the deadlock is a law about trains approved in a state of the United States, which has Topeka as its capital. Which state is it? CAN SAWS

Answer: Kansas

The state of Kansas has Topeka as its capital, even though its largest city is Wichita. At the start of the 20th century, a statute that is related to the deadlock was passed. The statute said that when two trains are close to each other, both trains should halt completely until the other leaves.

This action would be impossible since they both would be waiting for the other, causing a deadlock.
