**1. Answer the following questions in one or two sentences each:**

(1)What is the decimal system?

Ans.
The place-value system with base 10 is called the decimal system.

(2)What is the binary system?

Ans.
The place-value system with base 2 is called the binary system.

(3)Write any two points of difference
between the decimal and binary number system.

Ans. The base of
decimal system is 10. There are 10 digits (0 to 9).The base of binary system is
2. There are 2 digits are available (0 to 1).

(4)What is the place value of each bit in
the binary notation?

Ans. In the
binary notation, the place-value of each successive bit to the left of the unit
position indicates a multiple of successive power of 2.

(5)What is a byte?

Ans. A group of 8 bit treated as a unit in
computer hardware is called byte.

(6)What is a word to microprocessor?

Ans. A word is a larger unit, long enough to
contain an instruction or an integer, It may be 2-byte, 4-byte or 8 byte.

(7)What is meant by ASCII code?

Ans. American National Standard Institute (ANSI)
develop a table of 7-bit binary code to represent a text. It was called
American Standard Code for Information Interchange.(ASCII).
