The number of states required by a Finite State Machine, to simulate the behavior of a computer with a memory capable of storing ‘m’ words, each of length ‘n’ bits is? (A) m x 2n (B) 2m+n (C) 2mn (D) m+n

Answer: (C)

Explanation: Given, ‘m’ words, each of length ‘n’ bits, so total number of bits = m*n A state of finite state automata can store 1 bit of data, and a state can have either 0 or 1. Therefore, total number of states required by a Finite State Machine = 2mn. So, option (C) is correct.
