A 16-bit number is a number made of 16 binary digits. The largest 16-bit number is 1111111111111111 in binary (sixteen 1s), which is equal to 65535 in decimal.

This is presuming that you are using an 'unsigned' 16-bit number, which can store numbers from 0 to +65535. If you want to be able to store negative numbers as well, 16-bits will let you store numbers from -32768 to +32767, if you use the two's-complement method for storing a 'signed' value.

How many data lines are necessary in 16-bit microprocessor and what is the magnitude of the largest number that can be placed on its data bus?

The number of data lines required in a 16-bit microprocessor is 16, in the internal view, but could be something else, such as 8, in the external view. In the 8086/8088, the processor is 16 bits, and its internal data bus is 16 bits. The 8086 provides 16 bits on the external bus, but the 8088 provides 8 bits, even though they are the same internal processor - the 8088 simply uses two memory cycles to move one word. The largest number that can be represented on a 16 bit bus depends on the interpretation of that number. An unsigned 16 bit number ranges from 0 to 65535, so 65535 is the largest value when unsigned. A 16 bit two's complement signed number ranges from -32768 to +32767, so +32767 is the largest value when signed.


What is the largest decimal number that can be represented by a 16 bit binary word?

That would be 216 - 1, or 65535.


How many '1's are there in a 16 bit binary sequence?

In a 16 bit number there must be from zero to 16 '1'. If a bit does not have value zero then it has a value of 1. Nothing else can be represented by a bit. Example 0000 is a 4 bit number. Each bit is a zero. 1010 is also a four bit number. 0000111100001111 is a 16 bit number. 1100110011000001 is also a 16 bit number.
