You won't get any homework answers here... this is something you need to do for yourself.

Well it looks like your starting your homework research.

There is a 16 bit 32, and 64. Imagine a bus that has 16 seats and 32 people to transport (people are bits of information) The bus will need to make 2 trips.

The I and O represent on and off switches. The language that a computer understans is made up of OIIOOIIOI 8bits plus 1 more for parity (error checking).

So... a few key words to google.
Parity
16,32,64 bit OS
Computer language
16,32,64 bit bus.

I don't do homework either but a point in the right direction can be useful.

Just to make it "crystal clear" for the poster, binary is noughts and ones (not the upper case letters as posted in #2). The string given should actually read:
011001101

This statement makes no sense:
"what is the difference between 32 an operating system?"
An operating system is such things as XP, Vista or Windows 7.
These are currently in either 32 or 64 bit versions.
