# Machine Dynamics MCQ – Precision Points for Function Generation

1 - Question

The degree of the Bezier curve with n control points is:
a) n + 1
b) n – I
c) n
d) 2n

Explanation: The degree of a Bézier curve defined by n+1 control points is n:
In each basis function, the exponent of u is i + (n – i) = n. Therefore, the degree of the curve is n.

2 - Question

The degree of the B-spline with varying knot vectors:
a) Increases with knot vectors
b) Decreases with knot vectors
c) Remains constant
d) none of the mentioned

Explanation: Changing the degree of the curve due to the increase of knots will change the shape of the curve globally and will not be considered. Therefore, inserting a new knot causes a new control point to be added. In fact, some existing control points are removed and replaced with new ones by corner cutting.
