    Which bitwise operator is suitable for checking whether a particular bit is ON or OFF?

    to check if the ith bit is on or off in a number n following  bitwise operation is used.

    flag = n&(1<<i) ;

    if the value of flag is zero then the bit is set otherwise not.
    explanation of above approach is as follows.

    1. lets assume n is 9 so its bitwise operator is 1001 and bitwise representation of 1 is 0001

    2.to check if 4th bit is on we do left shift by 4 on 1 (1<<4) which shift the bits in one to left by 4 unit now the (1<<4)=1000

    3.Finally bitwise and operation is performed so  1001&1000 = 1000 which is not zero so it means that 4th bit of  9 is set

    Which bitwise operator is suitable for turning OFF a particular bit in a number?

    The bitwise operator xor i.e '^' is used to turn off a particular number

    by performing the following operations say we want to turn the ith bit off in a number n

    then n = n^(1<<i)

    What is equivalent of multiplying an unsigned int by 2: left shift of number by 1 or right shift of number by 1?

    multiplying a number by two is equivalent to bitwise left shift of a number by 1 for eg

    1 has a binary representation as 00001 left shift by 1 will make it 00010 which is 2.

    right shift is equivalent to divide a number by 2 .

    left shift is equivalent to multiply a number by 2.

    What are the differences between a structure and a union?

    Structure- It is an user defined data function that allow to store multiple type of data in a single unit.

    It occupies sum of memory of all location.

    Whereas, Union- It is also an user defined data function that allow to store multiple type of data in a single unit.

    But it occupies memory of largest member only.
