Correct Answer - Option 4 : ASCII

The correct answer is ASCII.

  • The FAT (File Allocation Table) uses the traditional 8.3 file naming convention and all filenames must be created with the ASCII character set. 
  • An 8.3 filename (also called a short filename or SFN) is a filename convention used by old versions of DOS and versions of Microsoft Windows prior to Windows 95 and Windows NT 3.5.
  • It is also used in modern Microsoft operating systems as an alternate filename to the long filename for compatibility with legacy programs.
  • The filename convention is limited by the FAT file system.
  • Similar 8.3 file naming schemes have also existed on earlier CP/M, TRS-80, Atari, and some Data General and Digital Equipment Corporation minicomputer operating systems.

  • ASCII abbreviated as American Standard Code for Information Interchange is a character encoding standard for electronic communication. 
  • The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) prefers the name US-ASCII for this character encoding.
  • ASCII is one of the IEEE milestones
