In serial data transmission, every byte of data is padded with a $'0'$ in the beginning and one or two $'1'$s at the end of byte because:

  1. receiver is to be synchronized for byte reception
  2. receiver recovers lost $'0'$s and $'1'$s from these padded bits
  3. padded bits are useful in parity computation
  4. none of the above
