(i)feasibility study- this extent to which the required software performs a series of steps to solve business problems and user requirements. This feasibility is dependent on human resources (software development team) and involves visualizing whether the software will operate after it is developed and be operative once it is installed.

(ii) Design – The prerequisite for this phase is the requirement specification document. In this phase, the system and software design are prepared based on the given requirements. The system design helps in specifying hardware and software requirements and overall defines the system architecture.

(3bi)

For 2kb

1 byte = 8 bits.

1 Kilobyte = 8 x 10³ Bits.

1 Kilobyte = 8 x 1000 Bits.

1 KB = 8000 bits.

.:. 2kb = 8000 x 2 = 16,000bits

For 2mb

1mb = 1000kb

.:. 2mb = 2000kb

Where 1kb = 8000 bits,

Then to find 2000kb in bits

= 8000 x 2000

=16,000,000 bits

(3bii)

The total storage of the two devices in bits = 16,000 + 16,000,000

= 16,016,000 bits

.:. Changing to bytes

= 8 bits = 1 byte

.:. 16,016,000 bits = ?

= 2,002,000 bytes
