Read the passage given below and answer the questions based on your understanding of the passage. (Question Nos. 46-50)
In the late 1990s the publishing world launched a new system into the information and publishing world called Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs). DOIs are alphanumeric character strings that identify objects in an electronic environment. DOIs are universal, unique and permanent identification tags for online content that is registered in an online directory. DOIs can cover any form of digital files such as text, image, video, audio or even software. DOIs can also cover many levels of content. For example, it might tag an entire book, a chapter in the book, illustrations, individual sentences, or perhaps the book’s index. It is a system that identifies creation endeavours and uniquely marks the content of these items. It is intended to individualize information units on the Web. DOIs can be placed in a variety of places, such as in the object itself, in an information structure that contains the object, on a Web page that describes the element, in a database or as an entry in an indexing system. The identifier tags have no intrinsic meaning, as a classification code does. They are content labels, each being unique and without duplicates. The identifiers are stored in a directory that allows the lookup of the current Internet address of the copyright owner and where the information now resides. The author, publisher or current owner is responsible for maintaining the response page, which presents data about the information item and the conditions of its use. The directory of DOIs routes inquiries to the up-to-date sites on the Internet for accessing the content of the object. When addresses change, the directory will route the query to where the content is currently located or to where information is given concerning how to obtain it. Over time, when objects move around or change ownership, the directory keeps tabs on these changes. Although the major purpose of the DOI system is the management of intellectual property, indexing and abstracting services, as well as document delivery services will find DOIs a useful tool.

46.What are DOIs ?
DOIs are numbers which identify object in traditional environment
DOIs are identifiers consisting of alphanumeric character strings for printed materials.
DOIs are alphanumeric character strings for electronic serials.
DOIs are alphanumeric character strings for electronic sources of information available on-line

47.What are the materials covered by DOIs ?
DOIs cover books and journals.
DOIs cover texts, images, audio visual materials in digital form.
DOIs cover electronically available S & T information.
DOIs cover digital format in US and Europe only

48.Do DOIs play any role in grouping of information sources ?
DOIs constitute the eclassification scheme to group sources of information
DOIs are not class numbers as such and have nothing to do with arrangement.
DOIs play the dual role of identifying and grouping.
DOIs are only like traditional class numbers in e-form.

49.What is the major purpose of DOI system ?
To organise e-resources on the Net.
To manage intellectual property.
To provide bibliographic description of digitized resources.
To control free access to eresources

50.How does DOI system operate ?
Routes inquiries to designated Document Supply Libraries.
Routes inquires to up to date sites of digital libraries.
Routes inquiries to national e-resources depositories
Routes inquiries to relevant sites on the Net.
