a. 500 K
b. 200 K
c. 300 K
d. 600 K
Answer:600 K
thrilokreddy :(May 19, 2018) first fit means it places the process by scanning the partitions from top to bottom and allocate the partition which is large enough.so 212k process is placed in 500k block and417k is placed in 600k block 112k is placed in 200k block and there is no enough place to accommodate 426k process.
