(C) Intel 8086               (D) Intel 80486
Answer: C
68.       “n” flip-flops will divide the frequency into a factor of:
(A) n                                           (B) 1/n
(C) 2 to the power of 'n'          (D) log(n)

69.       8 2 4 1 is the:
(A) BCD code               (B) Gray code
(C) Excess -3 code      (D) ASCII code
Answer: 8421 is BCD code.
BCD Code is 8421 (not 8241). Excess-3 and gray code are non-weighted codes.
70.    (1001000010011001) base 2; equivalent in base 16 is:
(A) 9899                        (B) 9989
(C) 8999                        (D) 9999
Answer: Correct answer is 9099
An easy way to convert from binary to hexadecimal is to group binary digits into sets of four, starting with the least significant (rightmost) digits. Pad the most significant digits with zeros if necessary to complete a group of four. Here 1001000010011001 is grouped as 1001, 0000, 1001, 1001. Decimal equivalent of each group is 9 0 9 9. Hence 9099 base 16 is the answer.
