Binary means consisting of or relating to 2, especially any kind of system that has two of something. The 'binary system' often means the numerical system that consists only of 0 and 1, as opposed to the decimal system that uses 10 digits. But there are binary stars, two stars that orbit around each other, and the word is used in many other ways as well.

### What is the binary code for B?

That depends what you mean by "B", and what you mean by "binary
code"
assuming that by "binary code", you actually mean a binary
representation of it's ascii value, then the answer is 1000010. The
ascii value of the character "B" is 66 in decimal, which is 1000010
is that value in binary.
If on the other hand, you mean "what is the binary value of the
hexidecimal number B?", then the answer is 1011.
