Consider the following recursive C function that takes two arguments.

unsigned int foo(unsigned int n, unsigned int r) {
    if (n>0) return ((n%r) + foo(n/r, r));
    else return 0;

What is the return value of the function $\text{foo}$ when it is called as $\text{foo(513, 2)}$?

  1. $9$
  2. $8$
  3. $5$
  4. $2$

Best answer
The function returns the sum of digits in a binary representation of the given number

so $1+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+1 = 2$
