Time taken to position the Read/Write head at the desired track of disk is known as

A)
Access time

B)

1 TB =______ Byte

A)
220

B)
230

C)
240

D)
250


Correct Answer :

240


Explanation :

1 byte = 8 bits
1 kilobyte (K / Kb) = 210 bytes = 1,024 bytes
1 megabyte (M / MB) = 220 bytes = 1,048,576 bytes
1 gigabyte (G / GB) = 230 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes
1 terabyte (T / TB) = 240 bytes = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes
