Could you please confirm if question number 31 (Machine Language) has the right answer. It should be option number (b), though i am not sure....may be because it has only in it.

Please confirm.

Sambasivan.S said...


We will opt for choice (b)

Machine code or machine language is a system of instructions and data executed directly by a computer's central processing unit. Machine code may be regarded as a primitive (and cumbersome) programming language or as the lowest-level representation of a compiled and/or assembled computer program. Programs in interpreted languages[1] are not represented by machine code, however, their interpreter (which may be seen as a processor executing the higher level program) often is. Machine code is sometimes called native code when referring to platform-dependent parts of language features or libraries.[2] Machine code should not be confused with so called "bytecode", which is executed by an interpreter.
