The transition diagram of a Turing machine is given below,together with some explanations. The input of this machine isencoded as a unary string x-y, where x and y are sequences of“1”.

In the diagram, state q0 is the initial state and state p is theaccepting state. The three-component tuple labelling thetransitions stands for the symbol being scanned, the symbol to bewritten and the direction of the head move. For example, at stateq0, if the machine is scanning symbol “1”, it will not change thecontent of the cell being scanned and the head will move one cellto the right. At state q2, if the symbol being scanned is “-” itwill be changed to “#” and the head will move one cell to theright. The current state then will change to state p.

For each of the following initial inputs on the tape givenbelow, describe their computations using Instantaneous Description.What will be on the tape after the machine halts?

a) #11111-11#

b) #11-111#
