What are the four kinds of general purpose register?

Four kinds of general purporse registers are AX, BX, CX, and DX registersn. AX is the accumulator register that stores the operands performed by ALU. BX is the base register that stores internal addressing,in short it stores memory addresses, CX does the counting, the looping while DX is the data register. General purpose registers store 8 bits, 16bits and 32 bits data.

21 Write a program in assembly language that calculates the square of six by adding six to the accumulator six times?

[org 0x0100] mov ax,6 ; load first number in ax add ax,6 ; accumulate sum add ax,6 add ax,6 add ax,6 add ax,6 mov ax, 0x4c00 ; terminate program int 0x21 ------ Another way: [org 0x0100] ; This is a .com file, not an .exe. DOS .com files start at 100h (256 decimal), have no stack segment, are no larger than 64k, and the code and data segments must be the same. xor ax, ax ;zero register mov cx, 6 ;put 6 in counter register for loop instruction start: add ax,6 ; accumulate sum loop start ; decrements cx and serves as conditional jump to start label. mov ax, 0x4c00 ; terminate program int 0x21 (I rarely terminated DOS programs this way using the DOS termination service (int 21h, ah=4ch). Usually, terminating with RetN was enough.)

Definition or function of AX accumulator register?

AX is one of four general purpose registers in Intel's x86 architecture. It's primary function is to store result of some mathematic operations (or in other words accumulate their results). In the later generation of processors it become parto of EAX register. It is probably still present in your CPU, if you have x86 compatible processor.
