Which of the following best describes odd parity memory,
A @ All data stored in memory is added; the answer is then stored in the parity bit
B @ When a byte of data is stored, the values of all bits in the byte are added; if the number is even, the parity bit is enabled to create an odd number.If all bits in the data byte total an odd number, the parity bit is turned off, leaving the total an odd number
C @ When a byte of data is stored, the values of all bits in the byte are added;if the number is odd, the parity bit is enabled to create an even number.If all bits in the data byte total an even number, the parity bit is turned off, leaving the total an even number
D @ Every 8 bits of data are added, and the total is stored in the parity bit for that particular 8 bits of data
B. Odd Parity memory stores a parity bit for every byte of data.
The Parity bit is enabled if the data bits total an even number.
The Parity bit is disabled if the data bits total an odd number.
- Enabled = (set to 1)
- Disabled = (set to 0)
