### Moving on, how many gigabytes is one exabyte?

• A.

50 million gigabytes

• B.

200 million gigabytes

• C.

500 million gigabytes

• D.

1 billion gigabytes

D. 1 billion gigabytes
Explanation
One exabyte is equal to 1 billion gigabytes. This is because the prefix "exa-" represents 10^18, and the prefix "giga-" represents 10^9. Therefore, when converting from exabytes to gigabytes, we multiply by 10^9, resulting in 1 billion gigabytes.

### 16 exbibytes is equal to what?

• A.

18 exabyte

• B.

16 exabyte

• C.

14 exabyte

• D.

12 exabyte

A. 18 exabyte
Explanation
An exbibyte (EiB) is a unit of digital information storage equal to 2^60 bytes. On the other hand, an exabyte (EB) is a unit of digital information storage equal to 10^18 bytes. Since 16 exbibytes is a larger unit than an exabyte, it cannot be equal to 18 exabyte. Therefore, the correct answer is 16 exabyte.
