For your initial post, compose a real-world analogy to illustrate the concept of different process states (new, running, waiting, ready, and terminated). Considering the diagram of process state in Figure 3.2 of the textbook, describe what happens in your scenario at each of the five oval nodes as well as the six arrows between the nodes.
An example is provided below.
Scenario: Hospital
New: The process is being created. (New patient enters hospital)
Running: Instructions are being executed. (Tests are being conducted for the patient)
Waiting: The process is waiting for some event to occur (such as an I/O completion or reception of a signal). (Waiting for the test reports)
Ready: The process is waiting to be assigned to a processor. (The patient should be assigned to a particular specialist depending on the test result)
Terminated: The process has finished execution. (The specialist has treated the patient)

New → Ready: The patient is admitted
Ready → Running: The patient is sent for tests or for surgery
Running → Terminate: Operation/treatment completed
Running → Ready: Second opinion from senior specialist
Running → Waiting: Waiting for the test reports
Waiting → Ready: Reports given to the specialist
