Alright computer whizes, here's another one. What's a nibble (smaller than a bit)? What do you know about it? And how extensive is your knowledge of it? Attack this quiz.

• 1.

### A nibble is known as half of?

• A.

Bit

• B.

Byte

• C.

Octet

• D.

Terabit

C. Octet
Explanation
A nibble is known as half of an octet. An octet is a unit of digital information that consists of 8 bits. Since a nibble represents 4 bits, it is exactly half of an octet.

• 2.

### A nibble can be represented by a?

• A.

Numeric byte

• B.

Bit number

• C.

Hex digit

• D.

Digit

C. Hex digit
Explanation
A nibble is a unit of digital information that consists of 4 bits. It represents a single hexadecimal digit, which can have a value from 0 to 15. Hex digits are commonly used in computer systems to represent binary data in a more compact and readable format. Therefore, a nibble can be represented by a hex digit.

• 3.

### How many possible values has a nibble?

• A.

16

• B.

1024

• C.

102

• D.

1000

A. 16
Explanation
A nibble is a unit of digital information that consists of 4 bits. Each bit can have two possible values, 0 or 1. Therefore, for a nibble, there are 2^4 = 16 possible values.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### A hexadecimal digit is at base?

• A.

6

• B.

10

• C.

12

• D.

16

D. 16
Explanation
A hexadecimal digit is at base 16 because hexadecimal is a number system with a base of 16. It uses 16 different symbols to represent values from 0 to 15, where the symbols 0-9 represent their respective values and the symbols A-F represent values 10-15. This base is commonly used in computer programming and digital systems because it can represent large numbers in a compact and easily understandable format.

### A nibble is also known as?

• A.

Mega bit

• B.

Quartet

• C.

Kilobit

• D.

Octetit

B. Quartet
Explanation
A nibble is a unit of digital information that consists of four bits. It is also commonly referred to as a quartet. The term "quartet" is used to describe a group or set of four, which aligns with the four bits that make up a nibble. Therefore, quartet is the correct term for a nibble. "Mega bit," "kilobit," and "octetit" are not accurate terms for a nibble.

### Do you know another name for a nibble?

• A.

Byle

• B.

Niblet

• C.

Nyble

• D.

Nibblet

C. Nyble
Explanation
A nibble is a unit of digital information that consists of four bits. Another name for a nibble is "nyble", which is a variation of the original term.

### What do you call a nibble in networking?

• A.

A nibble

• B.

Bi-bit

• C.

• D.

Semi-bit

Explanation
A nibble in networking is called a quad bit. A nibble is a unit of data that consists of four bits, and each bit can have two possible values, either 0 or 1. Therefore, a nibble represents a total of 16 possible combinations, which can be represented by four bits.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### When was the earliest recorded use of nybble?

• A.

1989

• B.

1976

• C.

1977

• D.

1978

C. 1977
Explanation
The earliest recorded use of nybble was in 1977.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### Which of the following is the ideal ow nibble?

• A.

1111 base 2

• B.

0001 base 2

• C.

0110 base 2

• D.

0111 base 2

B. 0001 base 2
Explanation
The ideal low nibble is the nibble that represents the smallest value. In binary, a nibble is a group of 4 bits. The binary representation of the numbers given are as follows: 1111, 0001, 0110, 0111. Among these, the binary number 0001 represents the smallest value, making it the ideal low nibble.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### There are how many types of nibbles, if you're using their values as a basis?

• A.

M5

• B.

4

• C.

3

• D.

2

D. 2
Explanation
The question is asking about the number of types of nibbles based on their values. A nibble is a unit of data equal to four bits, and each bit can have two possible values (0 or 1). Therefore, when using their values as a basis, there are only two types of nibbles: 0 and 1.
