# The binary system consists of only two digits: 0 and 1. What are 0 and 1 called?

Binary system of numbers is used to represent the numbers using only 0's and 1's. This is used to send, receive and transfer information among various servers, systems, and networks.

## Answer: In a binary system, the 0's and 1's are known as bits.

Let's understand the solution in detail.

**Explanation:**

Bits are the basic elements of a binary number.

In a binary system, bits are represented by 0's and 1's.

For example, we can represent the decimal number 33 as 100001. Hence, 32 is a six-bit number in the binary system, where 0's and 1's are the bits.

Similarly, 15 can be written as 1111 which is a 4-bit number.
