$10010$ is in decimal.

$10010+6000-1=16009$

Best answer

The following shows the sequence number for each segment:

Segment 1 -> 10,010 (10,010 to 11,009)

Segment 2 -> 11,010 (11,010 to 12,009)

Segment 3 -> 12,010 (12,010 to 13,009)

Segment 4 -> 13,010 (13,010 to 14,009)

Segment 5 -> 14,010 (14,010 to 16,009)

Unless specified as binary, you should not assume a given number as binary. I mean in GATE exam you won't have to assume stuffs as in mock tests -- I hope mock tests haven't spoiled many.

How we will differentiate if sequence number is in binary or decimal ? Base of number system should be mention or it will be explicitly mentioned in the question?
