    Instructions in the PC are written in

    Correct Answer(s)
    Binary
    Explanation
    Instructions in a computer are written in binary because computers use a binary system to represent and process information. Binary is a base-2 number system that uses only two digits, 0 and 1. These digits are used to represent the on and off states of electronic components in a computer's hardware. Each binary digit, or bit, can represent a single instruction or piece of data. By using binary, computers can efficiently store and manipulate large amounts of information, making it the most suitable language for instructions in a computer's central processing unit (CPU).
