A byte is
 A 8 bits B 4 bits C Either A or B D None of the above
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -On almost all modern computers, a byte is equal to 8 bits. Large amounts of memory are indicated in terms of kilobytes, megabytes, and gigabytes. A disk that can hold 1.44 megabytes, for example, is capable of storing approximately 1.4 million characters, or about 3, 000 pages of information.

Detailed explanation-2: -The byte is a unit of digital information that most commonly consists of eight bits.

Detailed explanation-3: -The byte was originally the smallest number of bits that could hold a single character (I assume standard ASCII). We still use ASCII standard, so 8 bits per character is still relevant.

Detailed explanation-4: -Common binary number lengths Each 1 or 0 in a binary number is called a bit. From there, a group of 4 bits is called a nibble, and 8-bits makes a byte.
