Section A

Attempt any two questions.


Explain the working details of Mid-point circle algorithm? Trace the points along the line path having two end points (6,9) and (2,3) using Bresenham’s line drawing algorithm.


Differentiate between object space and image space methods of hidden surface removal. Describe the Z-buffer hidden surface removal algorithm.
