A processor has 64 registers and uses 16-bit instruction format. It has two types of instructions: I-type and R-type. Each I-type instruction contains an opcode, a register name, and a 4-bit immediate value. Each R-type instruction contains an opcode and two register names. If there are 8 distinct I-type opcodes, then the maximum number of distinct R-type opcodes is _____.

A processor has $$16$$ integer registers $$\left( {R0,\,\,R1,\,\,..\,\,,\,\,R15} \right)$$) and $$64$$ floating point registers $$(F0, F1,… , F63).$$ It uses a $$2$$-byte instruction format. There are four categories of instructions: Type-$$1,$$ Type-$$2,$$ Type-3, and Type-$$4.$$ Type-$$1$$ category consists of four instructions, each with $$3$$ integer register operands $$(3Rs)$$. Type-$$2$$ category consists of eight instructions, each with $$2$$ floating point register operands $$(2Fs).$$ Type-$$3$$ category consists of fourteen instructions, each with one integer register operand and one floating point register operand $$(1R+1F).$$ Type-$$4$$ category consists of $$N$$ instructions, each with a floating point register operand $$(1F).$$

The maximum value of $$N$$ is __________.

Consider a processor with $$64$$ registers and an instruction set of size twelve. Each instruction has five distinct fields, namely, opcode, two source register identifiers, one destination register identifier, and a twelve-bit immediate value. Each instruction must be stored in memory in a byte-aligned fashion. If a program has $$100$$ instructions, the amount of memory (in bytes) consumed by the program text is _____________.

Consider the following code sequence having five instructions $${I_1}$$ to $${I_5}$$. Each of these instructions has the following format.

$$\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,OP\,\,Ri,\,\,Rj,\,\,Rk$$

where operation $$OP$$ is performed on contents of registers $$Rj$$ and $$Rk$$ and the result is stored in register $$Ri.$$

\eqalign{ & \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,{I_1}:ADD\,\,\,R1,\,R2,\,R3 \cr & \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,{I_2}:MUL\,\,R7,\,R1,\,R3 \cr & \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,{I_3}:SUB\,\,\,\,R4,\,R1,\,R5 \cr & \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,{I_4}:ADD\,\,\,R3,\,R2,\,R4 \cr & \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,{I_5}:MUL\,\,\,R7,\,R8,\,R9 \cr}

Consider the following three statements.

$$\,\,\,\,\,\,S1:\,\,$$ There is an anti-dependence between instructions $${L_2}$$ and $${L_5}$$
$$\,\,\,\,\,\,S2:\,\,$$ There is an anti-dependence between instructions $${L_2}$$ and $${L_4}$$
$$\,\,\,\,\,\,S3:\,\,$$ Within an instruction pipeline an anti-dependence always creates one or more stalls

Which one of above statements is/are correct?

A
Only $$S1$$ is true
B
Only $$S2$$ is true
C
Only $$S1$$ and $$S3$$ are true
D
Only $$S2$$ and $$S3$$ are true
