Suppose that a machine has $438-bit$ virtual addresses and $32-bit$ physical addresses. What is the main advantage of a multilevel page table over a single-level one? With a two-level page table, $16-KB$ pages, and $4-byte$ entries, how many bits should be allocated for the top-level page table field and how many for the next level page table field? Explain.

Suppose that a machine has $48-bit$ virtual addresses and $32-bit$ physical addresses. If pages are $4\: KB$, how many entries are in the page table if it has only a single level? Explain. Suppose this same system has a $TLB$ (Translation Lookaside Buffer ... and it sequentially reads long integer elements from an array that spans thousands of pages. How effective will the $TLB$ be for this case?
