1 second ---- >1200 bits.

? ------ > 2000*8 bits.

I think the answer is 12 seconds.

1 Baud = 1 bit per sec.
So, (16,000 bit * Sec) / 1200 bit = 160/12 = 13.333 Sec.

The Correct & final Answer is E. None.

1200/12=100 by steps.
Therefore 2000*1byte/100byteps=20 second.
B is the correct answer.

1 Character = 8 bits.
1 Baud = 1 bit/sec.

A frame = Start Bit + Data Bit + Parity Bit + Stop Bit.
= 1+8+1+2=12 bit.
Time for transmission = (12*2000)/1200 = 20 seconds.
Correct answer is option B.
