## Question:

A computer has a 32-bit instruction word broken into ields as follows:

opcode, six bits; two register ile address ields, ive bits each; and one immediate operand/register ile address ield, 16 bits.

**(a) **What is the maximum number of operations that can be speciied?

**(b) **How many registers can be addressed?

**(c) **What is the range of unsigned immediate operands that can be provided?

**(d) **What is the range of signed immediate operands that can be provided, assuming that the operands are in 2s complement representation and that bit 15 is the sign bit?
