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.

Consider two processors ܲ$${P_1}$$ and $${P_2}$$ executing the same instruction set. Assume that under identical conditions, for the same input, a program running on $${P_2}$$ takes $$25$$% less time but incurs $$20$$% more $$CPI$$ (clock cycles per instruction) as compared to the program running on ܲ$${P_1}$$ If the clock frequency of ܲ$${P_1}$$ is $$1GHz,$$ then the clock frequency of $${P_2}$$ (in $$GHz$$) is _____________.

Consider a hypothetical processor with an instruction of type $$LW$$ $$R1, 20(R2),$$ which during execution reads a $$32$$-bit word from memory and stores it in a $$32$$-bit register $$R1.$$ The effective address of the memory location is obtained by the addition of a constant $$20$$ and the contents of register $$R2.$$ Which of the following best reflects the addressing mode implemented by this instruction for the operand in memory?

A
B
C
