Consider the following message M = 1010001101. The cyclic redundancy check (CRC) for this message using the divisor polynomial x5 + x4 + x2 + 1 is :

(A) 01110
(B) 01011
(C) 10101
(D) 10110

Answer: (A)


M = 1010001101
Divisor polynomial: 1.x5 +1.x4+0.x3+1.x2+0.x2+1.x0   
Divisor polynomial bit= 110101
Bits to be appended to message= (divisor polynomial bits – 1) = 5
Append 5 zeros to message bits, modified message: 101000110100000

Now, divide and XOR the message with divisor polynomial bits. Make resultant reminder to 5 bit again and that is the CRC send along with the message.
