(a) Largest positive value:

This happens when all significant (mantissa) bits are 1, and the exponent bits are all 1.

$=(b)^{p-1} -1\times (b)^{X-q}$

Smallest positive value:

This happens when the LSB of mantissa is 1 and the exponent bits are 0 so that subtracting the bias gives the largest negative value possible for exponent
$=1 \times (b)^{-q}$
0

I have doubt regarding Floating point repsentation i cannot understand when we take the bias to 2^6=64 normalisation is said to occur when the number is in the form of 0.1bbbbb but normalisation is said to occur when bias is 63 then normalisation is said to occur when the number is of the form 1.BBBBB 

This is from the solution maual to stallings 

also many youtube videos also say normalisaton of fp is reprsentaion in 0.11111 form 

see this 

could you plz expain

@Arjun sir I am not able to understand why $(b)^{p-1}$ why not $(b)^{p}$ ? Can you kindly explain?

IEEE 754 32 bit representation for reference:- 1. For the demoralized numbers,why the exponent is -126 and not -127? For 0 we say it is Mantissa=0 and B.E=0, so we get 0*2^0-127=0,but for any number that is having bias exponent as 0 and Mantissa non ... 127 and +128) comes under overflow and underflow condition.I mean if i am 0 or infinity or NAN then can i say that system is overflow/underflow?
