Option (B) is correct. Since initial slope of the bode plot is 40 dB/decade, so no. of poles at origin is 2. Transfer function can be written in following steps: 1. Slope changes from 40 dB/dec. to 60 dB/dec. at 1 = 2 rad/sec., so at 1 there is a pole in the transfer function. 2. 3. Slope changes from 60 dB/dec to 40 dB/dec at 2 = 5 rad/sec., so at this frequency there is a zero lying in the system function. The slope changes from 40 dB/dec to 60 dB/dec at 3 = 25 rad/sec, so there is a pole in the system at this frequency. T (s) =

We know that for a system having many poles, nearness of the poles towards imaginary axis in s -plane dominates the nature of time response. So here time constant given by two poles which are nearest to imaginary axis. Poles nearest to imaginary axis s1 = 1 , s2 = 1 3 6 So, time constants ) 1 = 3 sec 2 = 6 sec

Option (D) is correct. Initial slope of the bode plot is 40 dB/dec. So no. of poles at origin is 2. Then slope increased by 20 dB/dec. at = 2 rad/sec, so one poles lies at this frequency. At = 5 rad/sec slope changes by + 20 dB/dec, so there is one zero lying at this frequency. Further slope decrease by 20 dB/dec at = 25 so one pole of the system is lying at this frequency.
