Ans A) 300

Total number of bits per character while transmitting is (7+1)=8 bits

No of character transmitted 2400/8=300 bps

I think it should be 300

in Synchronous transmission, we don't need start and stop bit.

on;y 8 bits are used ,so 2400/8 = 300 (A)

U r right , it should be 300.

The Answer is 300 according to answer key also

ok corrected

if it asynchronous,we need to consider start and stop bits?

refer question no. 19 of ISRO 2007, a slight difference,then why have you not added start and stop bit ?
