What is assembly language?

Its just a mnemonic. instead of using binary digits we are using this hexadecimal code to make us easier to deal with the instructions.

Assembly language is for user, but mp understands only machine codes nd works in accordance with the codes.

Assembly language program is helpful software for user to access mp, mp understands machine language to help user we use assembly language, which is very compact than higher level language like embedded c language.

Why machine language not?

Durga said: (May 4, 2014)  
Dear Neha,

Actually machine language is in the form of 0s and 1s so it doesn't understand by the user. That's why we will use assembly language is it in the form of codes.

But assembly language is coding language but firmware refers to software.

Arnab said: (Jan 20, 2016)  
Technically, the software is called firmware. Machine language code can be considered arguably as an explicit answer. Assembly language is not a software.

Why not machine language?

Amruta said: (Sep 10, 2017)  
Yeah, it should be firmware. As software is asked.

Sanjay said: (Mar 13, 2018)  
The correct answer to the question must be Firmware.
