    • D.

      0100

    Correct Answer
    C. 1000
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 1000 because in binary representation, each bit represents a power of 2. Starting from the rightmost bit, the first bit represents 2^0, the second bit represents 2^1, the third bit represents 2^2, and so on. Therefore, in the four-bit binary representation, the leftmost bit is 2^3, which equals 8 in decimal.

    The decimal equivalent of the binary value 0010010 is 

    • A.

      12

    • B.

      18

    • C.

      15

    • D.

      8

    Correct Answer
    B. 18
    Explanation
    The binary value 0010010 can be converted to decimal by multiplying each digit by the corresponding power of 2 and summing the results. In this case, the leftmost digit is 0, so it does not contribute to the sum. The next digit is 0, which also does not contribute. The third digit is 1, which contributes 2^4 = 16 to the sum. The fourth digit is 0, so it does not contribute. The fifth digit is 0, so it does not contribute. The sixth digit is 1, which contributes 2^1 = 2 to the sum. The seventh digit is 0, so it does not contribute. Adding 16 and 2 gives a total of 18.

    • D.

      000000011111

    Correct Answer
    A. 101100010101
    Explanation
    The BCD representation of (-15) is 101100010101 because BCD (Binary Coded Decimal) is a binary representation of decimal numbers where each decimal digit is represented by a 4-bit binary code. In this case, (-15) is represented as a negative number in BCD using the two's complement notation. The binary representation of 15 is 0000 1111, and then the two's complement is taken by inverting all the bits and adding 1, resulting in 1111 0001. Therefore, the BCD representation of (-15) is 101100010101.
