Solution:

Before we start explanation, kindly keep in mind that this is base 2 number system problem, and hence, every time we count a sum as 2 or take an  even count we assume it to be equal to 10.

### To find this sum of numbers in base 2, see the step wise explanation here;

##### Step 1

1- In above figure , we started from right side column and took sum of entries in the extreme right column i-e 1+1 =2, — but as said in the note above we will assume it to be 10 instead i-e 1+1 = 10. We wrote 0 under line and carried 1 in circle over second column.

##### Step 2

2- In second column (second fig above) now there are three entries i-e 1 carried over from first column ,and  —- 1 and 1 already present there . We took sum of these three entries as 1+1+1=2+1=10+1=11 (because 2 is equal to 10 as assumed ).

Of this 11, we wrote 1 under line in second column and carried  1 over third column.

##### Step 3

3- In third column  (third fig above) now there are three entries i-e 1 – carried over from second column, and — 1 and 0 already present there.  We took sum of these three entries as 1+1+0=2,   or as per assumption 1+1+0 = 2= 10. We write 0 under line in third column and took 1 as carried over in circle over fourth column.

#### Step 4

4- In fourth column (fourth fig above) there are two entries i-e 1 and 0 and 0, we took sum as 1+0+0=1 and wrote it under line in fourth column.

##### Step 5

5- In fifth column (fifth fig above) again there are two entries i-e 1 and 0, we took sum as 1+0=1, and wrote this 1 under line in fifth column.

##### Step 6

6- In sixth column (sixth fig above) there are two entries i-e 1 and 1 of which sum is 1+1=2 which we assume as 10 i-e 1+1=10 instead , as per assumption.Of this 10 we wrote 0 under line in fifth column and carried 1 in circle  over the seventh column.

##### Step 7

7- In the seventh column (seventh fig above) now there becomes two entries i-e 1 in circle —  carried over  from sixth column and already present 0. We took sum of these 1+0 = 1, which we wrote under seventh column.

##### Step 8

8- In the last column there is the only entry 1 which we wrote under line in eighth column as it is i-e 1

In this way we completed the summation process and finally put small bracket around our answer and insert base 2 as below

$(11011010)_2$

So option b is correct !
