What subsets of a finite universal set do these bit strings represent?

a) the string with all zeros

b) the string with all ones

Step 1:

In this problem we have to define the subsets of bit strings .

Definition : A bit string is a sequence of zero or more bits , which is defined by 0 or 1. A bit string’s length is the number of bits in the string.

If we define the universal set U and then assign a bit number to each subsets A as follows . A bit is 1 , if the element corresponding to the position of the bit in the universal set is in A and otherwise 0.

Step 2:

Let U is the universal set and we define the universal set ,

Which is U = {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10}

Here the subsets of universal set is 210. That is we have 210 number of subsets.
