38.

Usually, it takes 10-bits to represent one character. How many characters can be transmitted at a speed of 1200 BPS?

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

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Sahana said: (Jun 18, 2012) 1200/10=120. Option C is the correct answer.

 Chandan said: (Aug 19, 2012) One character =10 bit. 1200 bit = 120 character. Therefore in 1 sec 120 character transfer.

 Tzr Long said: (Jun 17, 2013) BPS it means bytes per second.

 Ashtar said: (Mar 18, 2015) BPS means 8 bits PS as 1 byte = 8 bits or you mean byte = 10 bit for this case.

 Ksk said: (Aug 27, 2015) Its case sensitive. B - Bytes. b - bits. Such answers are unacceptable.

 Vishal said: (May 12, 2016) 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.

 Sharath said: (Dec 31, 2016) (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.
