GATE | GATE-CS-2006 | Question 85
A CPU has 24-bit instructions. A program starts at address 300 (in decimal). Which one of the following is a legal program counter (all values in decimal)?
Here, size of instruction = 24/8 = 3 bytes. Program Counter can shift 3 bytes at a time to jump to next instruction. So the given options must be divisible by 3. only 600 is satisfied.
