Correct Answer - Option 3 : B

The correct answer is B.

  • MIPS stands for Million Instruction Per Second.
  • It is a method of measuring the raw speed of a computer's processor.
  • Since the MIPS measurement doesn't take into account other factors such as the computer's I/O speed or processor architecture, it isn't always a fair way to measure the performance of a computer.
  • To calculate MIPS, divide the number of cycles per second (CPU) by the number of cycles per instruction (CPI) and then divide by 1 million to find the MIPS.
  • They're frequently the processors used in things like routers and other small computing appliances like that.
