(d) CHARACTER: It is represented by one byte. It can be a letter, digit, punctuation mark or special characters.
(e) WORD: The combination of 2 bytes or 4 bytes or 8 bytes is a word.
The data measurement
8 bits – 1 byte
1024 bytes – 1 kilobyte (KB)
1024 KB – 1 Mega Byte (MB)
1024 MB – 1 Giga Byte (GB)
1024 GB – 1 Tetra Byte (TB)
