    Correct Answer
    D. 1 073 741 824 bytes or 1 000 000 000 bytes
    Explanation
    A gigabyte is approximately 1 billion bytes. Industry standards put the real value of 1 073 741 824, as there are 1024 bytes in a kilobyte, 1024 kilobytes in a megabyte, etc. 1024 x 1024 x 1024 is 1 073 741 824. It is a common marketing strategy to simply round this number off as "a billion bytes", however.
