Hi! Just wanted to clarify the expected behaviour of a system call that needs to use the CPU for a length of time equal to the time quantum! From my understanding, this is the behaviour of the sample solution (just wanted to confirm that this is correct - and is what we need to implement into our code) If a process needs to use the CPU e.g. for 30usecs, and the time quantum is also equal to 30usecs, the process will be kicked off the CPU at the end of the time quantum and return to the READY queue. There it will wait and then (eventually) back on the CPU where it will resume running for its remaining execution time - effectively "0usecs". Hope this makes sense! Clarity/confirmation would be appreciated
