    Make a guess, then ask.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    the no. is 16 BITS

    so i expect i can divide it into groups of 4, so easiest possibility is HEX?

    Sounds good to me.

    you can express numbers in hex notation in C, so it could be.

    Basically, any numbering system who's base is a power of 2.
