Description : What is the baud rate of the standard 10 Mbps Ethernet ? (A) 10 megabaud (B) 20 megabaud (C) 30 megabaud (D) 40 megabaud

Answer : (B) 20 megabaud

Description : The baud rate of a signal is 600 baud/second. If each signal unit carries 6 bits, then the bit rate of a signal is ................. (A) 3600 (B) 100 (C) 6/600 (D) None of the above

Answer : (A) 3600 

Description : An analog signal carries 4 bits in each signal unit. If 1000 signal units are sent per second, then baud rate and bit rate of the signal are ............... and .............. (A) 4000 bauds \ sec & ... (B) 2000 bauds \ sec & 1000 bps (C) 1000 bauds \ sec & 500 bps (D) 1000 bauds \ sec & 4000 bps

Answer : (D) 1000 bauds \ sec & 4000 bps Explanation: Bit rate is the number of bits per second. Baud rate is the number of signal units per second. Baud rate is less than or equal to the bit rate. Baud rate = 1000 bauds per second (baud/s) Bit rate = 1000 x 4 = 4000 bps
