Correction and change in Assignment

Dear All

As many of you have expressed confusion regarding Assignment 4 Question 5, that particular question has been reviewed and it has been marked as a zero question. No marks will be awarded for that question. 
Assignment 7 Question 1, as many of you have rightly pointed out was incorrectly evaluated. The correct answer is option 4 None of the Above, and not Option 1. It has been changed now.  I thank the students who noted this discrepancy and brought it to our notice.
There will automatically be a change in your grades due to these two changes, so please do not worry.We are also glad to know that people have learned from the course and have been immensely diligent and interested in asking for clarifications about their doubts.
We hope all of you were satisfied with the final exam and have had a good time learning with us. 
Your results will be out by the end of the month or early next month and notifications regarding the same will be sent accordingly.

Regards,

Jyoti Mishra
