1. 

Select the statement that best describes the parity method of error detection:

[A]. Parity checking is best suited for detecting double-bit errors that occur during the transmission of codes from one location to another.
[B]. Parity checking is not suitable for detecting single-bit errors in transmitted codes.
[C]. Parity checking is best suited for detecting single-bit errors in transmitted codes.
[D]. Parity checking is capable of detecting and correcting errors in transmitted codes.

Parity checking is done for single bit correction only.

A parity bit is a bit that is added to ensure that the number of bits with the value one in a set of bits is even or odd. Parity bits are used as the simplest form of error detecting code.
