[A]. 10
[B]. 12
[C]. 120
[D]. 1200
[E]. None of the above

1200/10=120. Option C is the correct answer.

One character =10 bit.

1200 bit = 120 character.

Therefore in 1 sec 120 character transfer.

BPS it means bytes per second.

BPS means 8 bits PS as 1 byte = 8 bits or you mean byte = 10 bit for this case.

Its case sensitive.

B - Bytes.

b - bits.

Such answers are unacceptable.

It takes 10 bit to represent 1 character which means 1 Byte + 2 bits are needed to represent one character at a speed of 1200 BPS. You can also send maximum of 1200 BYTE in a second (9600 bits per second).

So it can send a maximum of 960 characters in a second. So 120 is appropriate here.

(1200 * 8)/10 = 960 characters.

Shewangizaw Bogale said: (Feb 10, 2017)  
Such questions are case sensitive, B = Bytes, b = bits, and 1 Byte = 8 bit

Thus the answers is wrong, and (1200 * 8)/10 = 960 characters is the correct answer, so E. none is the answer here.
