One important section in Computer Programming is Data Type Questions. AMCAT DETAILS brings you some important questions for you to prepare on this topis which includes:

Data Type and Byte type questions
(Create data type question, how many bits questions required)

So prepare well and get placed!

Ques. There is a new data-type which can take as values natural numbers between (and including) 0 and 25. How many minimum bits are required to store this data-type.

Op 1: 4

Op 2: 5

Op 3: 1

Op 4: 3

Op 5:

Correct Op:2

Ques. A data type is stored as an 6 bit signed integer. Which of the following cannot be represented by this data type?
Op 1: -12

Op 2: 0

Op 3: 32

Op 4: 18
Op 5:
Correct Op : 3

Ques. A language has 28 different letters in total. Each word in the language is composed of maximum 7 letters. You want to create a data-type to store a word of this language. You decide to store the word as an array of letters. How many bits will you assign to the data-type to be able to store all kinds of words of the language. Op 1: 7
Op 2: 35

Op 3: 28

Op 4: 196
Op 5:

Correct Op : 2

Ques. A 10-bit unsigned integer has the following range:

Op 1: 0 to 1000

Op 2: 0 to 1024

Op 3: 1 to 1025

Op 4: 0 to 1023

Op 5:

Correct Op : 4

Ques. Rajni wants to create a data-type for the number of books in her book case. Her shelf can accommodate a maximum of 75 books. She allocates 7 bits to the data-type. Later another shelf is added to her book-case. She realizes that she can still use the same data-type for storing the number of books in her book-case. What is the maximum possible capacity of her new added shelf?
Op 1: 52

Op 2: 127

Op 3: 53

Op 4: 75
Op 5:

Correct Op : 1

Ques. A new language has 15 possible letters, 8 different kinds of punctuation marks and a blank character. Rahul wants to create two data types, first one which could store the letters of the language and a second one which could store any character in the language. The number of bits required to store these two data-types will respectively be:
Op 1: 3 and 4

Op 2: 4 and 3

Op 3: 4 and 5

Op 4: 3 and 5
Op 5:

Correct Op : 3

Ques. Parul takes as input two numbers: a and b. a and b can take integer values between 0 and 255. She stores a, b and c as 1-byte data type. She writes the following code statement to process a and b and put the result in c.

c = a + 2*b

To her surprise her program gives the right output with some input values of a and b, while gives an erroneous answer for others. For which of the following inputs will it give a wrong answer?

Op 1: a = 10 b = 200

Op 2: a = 200 b = 10

Op 3: a = 50 b = 100

Op 4: a = 100 b = 50 Op 5:

Correct Op : 1

Ques. Prashant takes as input 2 integer numbers, a and b, whose value can be between 0 and 127. He stores them as 7 bit numbers. He writes the following code to process these numbers to produce a third number c.

c = a - b

In how many minimum bits should Prashant store c?

Op 1: 6 bits

Op 2: 7 bits

Op 3: 8 bits

Op 4: 9 bits

Op 5:

Correct Op : 3

Ques. Ankita takes as input 2 integer numbers, a and b, whose value can be between 0 and 31. He stores them as 5 bit numbers. He writes the following code to process these numbers to produce a third number c.

c = 2*(a - b)

In how many minimum bits should Ankita store c?

Op 1: 6 bits

Op 2: 7 bits

Op 3: 8 bits

Op 4: 9 bits

Op 5:

Correct Op : 2

Ques. A character in new programming language is stored in 2 bytes. A string is represented as an array of characters. A word is stored as a string. Each byte in the memory has an address. The word "Mahatma Gandhi" is stored in the memory with starting address 456. The letter 'd' will be at which memory address?

Op 1: 468

Op 2: 480

Op 3: 478

Op 4: 467
Op 5:

Correct Op : 3

Op 1: integer
Op 2: boolean
Op 3: float

Op 4: character
