  2. 3 & 6

  3. 3 | 6

  4. 1 | 6

  5. 3 ^ 6

  6. 7 >> 1

  2. !0

  3. 2 & 4

  4. 2 && 4

  5. 2 | 4

  6. 2 || 4

5:Because the ASCII code uses only the final 7 bits, sometimes it is desirable to mask off the other bits. What's the appropriate mask in binary? In decimal? In octal? In hexadecimal?
6:In Listing 15.2, you can replace
while (bits-- > 0)
    {
        mask |= bitval;
        bitval <<= 1;
    }

with

while (bits-- > 0)
    {
        mask += bitval;
        bitval *= 2;
    }

and the program still works. Does this ...
