D. All pass

An ideal Hilbert transformer is an all-pass filter.

A.-j ;0 ≤ ω ≤ π  j ;-π ≤ ω ≤ 0
B. j ;0 ≤ ω ≤ π-j ;-π ≤ ω ≤ 0
C. -j ;-π ≤ ω ≤ π
D. None of the mentioned

The frequency response of an ideal Hilbert transform is given as
H(ω) = -j ;0 ≤ ω ≤ π
H(ω) = j ;-π ≤ ω ≤ 0

4. In which of the following fields, Hilbert transformers are frequently used?

A. Generation of SSB signals
C. Speech signal processing
D. All of the mentioned

Hilbert transforms are frequently used in communication systems and signal processing, as, for example, in the generation of SSB modulated signals, radar signal processing, and speech signal processing.

5. The unit sample response of an ideal Hilbert transform is

h(n) =$$\frac{2}{\pi} \frac{(sin(\frac{πn}{2}))^{2}}{n}$$; n≠0
h(n)=0; n=0

A. True
B. False

We know that the frequency response of an ideal Hilbert transformer is given as
H(ω)= -j ;0 < ω < π
j ;-π < ω < 0

Thus the unit sample response of an ideal Hilbert transform is obtained as

h(n)=$$\frac{2}{\pi} \frac{(sin(\frac{πn}{2}))^{2}}{n}$$; n≠0

h(n)=0; n=0

6. The unit sample response of the Hilbert transform is infinite in duration and causal.

A. True
B. False

We know that the unit sample response of the Hilbert transform is given as

h(n)=$$\frac{2}{\pi} \frac{(sin(\frac{πn}{2}))^{2}}{n}$$; n≠0

h(n)=0; n=0

it sample response of an ideal Hilbert transform is infinite in duration and non-causal.

7. The unit sample response of Hilbert transform is _________

A. Zero
B. Symmetric
C. Anti-symmetric
D. None of the mentioned

We know that the unit sample response of the Hilbert transform is given as

h(n)=$$\frac{2}{\pi} \frac{(sin(\frac{πn}{2}))^{2}}{n}$$; n≠0

h(n)=0; n=0

Thus from the above equation, we can tell that h(n)=-h(-n). Thus the unit sample response of the Hilbert transform is anti-symmetric in nature.

8. In this section, we confine our attention to the design of FIR Hilbert transformers with h(n)=-h(M-1-n).

A. True
B. False

In view of the fact that the ideal Hilbert transformer has an anti-symmetric unit sample response, we shall confine our attention to FIR designs in which h(n)=-h(M-1-n).

9. Which of the following is true regarding the frequency response of Hilbert transform?

A. Complex
B. Purely imaginary
C. Purely real
D. Zero

Our choice of an anti-symmetric unit sample response is consistent with having a purely imaginary frequency response characteristic.

10. It is impossible to design an all-pass digital Hilbert transformer.

A. True
B. False
