 Madhava Reddy said: (Jan 10, 2012) Time = (no of bits/frequency) = 8/(1.5*10^6) = 5.33 micro seconds

 Srikanth said: (Nov 26, 2012) Given number is in hexadecimal then the no of bits should be 16, but why you can take as 8 bits. Please explain me.

 Vipul Chaudhary said: (Dec 29, 2012) Here in this question the data are serially transmit right so we will conisder the bits. Now, (c3) hexa decimal means (1100 0011) right that means no of bits is 8 and the value is c3. So, Time = (no of bits/frequency) = 8/ (1.5*10^6) = 5.33 micro seconds.
