I am a bit confused what alternatives are or how to find out how many are in an ADC. The book I have wasn't much help and I need to find this out for a project. Does anyone know the answer or how to find out? thank you.

## Best Answer

The answer has nothing at all to do with ADCs, but is simple binary.

The value given by the ADC is 14-bits wide, so therefore it has a possible \$2^{14}\$ combinations, or 16384.
