## Understanding BCD Code for Decimal Number

**BCD (Binary Coded Decimal)**is a coding system that represents each decimal digit with a four-bit binary code. To convert the decimal number 273.98 to BCD, we convert each digit separately. The BCD representation of 2 is

**0010**, the BCD representation of 7 is

**0111**, the BCD representation of 3 is

**0011**, and the BCD representation of 9 is

**1001**. The decimal point remains as it is. Therefore, the BCD code for the whole number part of 273 is

**0010 0111 0011**, and for the fractional part .98 is

**.1001 1000**. Combining these parts, we get the BCD representation of the decimal number 273.98 as

**0010 0111 0011 .1001 1000**. Thus, option d is the correct BCD code for the given decimal number.
