The smallest unit of storage in a computer

Answer:

The smallest unit of data storage in a computer is called Bit (Binary Digit). Half a byte (four bits) is called a Nibble.

1 bit (binary digit) = the value of 0 or 1

8 bits = 1 byte

1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte

1024 kilobytes = 1 megabyte

1024 megabytes = 1 gigabyte

1024 gigabytes = 1 terabyte

1024 terabytes = 1 petabyte

Hence, Computer storage units smallest to largest i.e, in ascending order is

1 bit < 1 byte < 1 KB < 1 MB < 1 GB < 1TB < 1 PB.
