ISRO | ISRO CS 2013 | Question 18
How many check bits are required for 16 bit data word to detect 2 bit errors and single bit correction using hamming code?
For error detection d+1 bits are required
Here, d=2, bits required = 3
For error correction 2d+1 bits are required.
Here, d=1, bits required = 2*1 + 1 = 3
Total bits required = 3 + 3 = 6
So, (B) is the correct option.
