Determine what data means and recommend ways to search the data

Specialize in collecting data from different sources, organizing it in suitable format, and making


Design, create, manage and interpret large datasets to achieve business goals

Develops codes and images to automate data reports

Question 9:- In the MapReduce framework, map and reduce functions can be run in any order. Do you agree and

Yes, because in functional programming, the order of execution is not important.

Yes, because the functions use KVP as input and output; order is not important.

No, because the output of the map function is the input for the reduce function.

No, because the output of the reduce function is the input for the function.

Question 10:- Which of the following components of Hadoop provides SQL-like access to structured data and sophisticated Big Data analysis with MapReduce?

Marketing companies

Medical claims companies

Construction companies

CRM based manufacturing companies

Question 12:- Why are Big Data applications susceptible to latency?

The volume of Big Data is too large to be analyzed rapidly.

Big Data may reside in a different location from the application.

Big Data cannot use in-memory computing.

Big Data applications are still in early stages of development.

Question 13:- ABC is a retailer organization that conducts its business through e-commerce. The organization offers customized online shopping experience to their customers with an attractive and responsive Web page user interface. Now the company wants to collect the data about customers’ activities on the Internet. What can be the best source for such data?

Transactional database

Question 18:- Which of the following describes the map function?

It processes data to create a list of key-value pairs.

It indexes the data to list all the words occurring in it.

It converts a relational database to key-value pairs.

It tracks data across multiple tables and clusters in Hadoop.

Question 19:- Which of the following describes the reduce function?

It analyzes the map function results to show the most frequently occurring values.

It combines the map function results to return a list of the best matches for the query.

It adds the results of the map function to convert the KVP lists to columnar databases.

It processes map function results and creates a new KVP list to answer the query.

Question 20:- How does MapReduce achieve co-location?

a) The scheduler sends the code to the machine where the relevant data resides.

b) The process scheduler distributes data of the same type to machines in the same cluster.

c) The master JobTracker sends map and reduce functions to the same machines or nodes in acluster.

d) The slave TaskTrackers copy related data and code to adjacent clusters in case of processingfailure.

This problem has been solved.
