Ans. The difference between the serial transmission and parallel
transmission is given below –
S.No. Parallel Transmission Serial Transmission
(i) This type of transmission In this transmission, all the bits
permits the transmission of a are transmitted one after another.
x group of bits simultaneously.
(ii) Separate lines are used for Just one line is used for transmitting
each group. mission.
(iii) This transmission is suitable This transmission is suitable
for short distance. for long distances.
(iv) This transmission is expensive. It is cheaper in comparison.
(v ) This transmission is not This transmission is more reliable.
(vi) It takes less time in transmi- It takes more time in transmission.
(vii) Transmission circuitry is Transmission circuitry is complex
simple. due to sending and receiving
(viii) Its main advantage is speed. It is slower in comparison to
