A simplified view of thread states is Ready, Running, and

A simplified view of thread states is Ready, Running, and Blocked, where a thread is either ready and waiting to be scheduled, is running on the processor, or is blocked (i.e. is waiting for I/O.) This is illustrated in Figure. Assuming a thread is in the Running state, answer the following questions: (Be sure to explain your answer.)

a. Will the thread change state if it incurs a page fault? If so, to what new state?
b. Will the thread change state if it generates a TLB miss that is resolved in the page table? If so, to what new state?
c. Will the thread change state if an address reference is resolved in the page table? If so, to what new state?
