Print ‘K’th least significant bit of a number

A number N is given. We need to print its ‘K’th Least Significant Bit.

Examples :

Input : num = 10, k = 4 
Output : 1
Explanation : Binary Representation 
of 10 is 1010. 4th LSB is 1.

Input : num = 16, k = 3
Output : 0
Explanation : Binary Representation 
of 16 is 10000. 3rd LSB is 0.

We can easily solve this problem by following steps :

  1. Shift the number ‘1’ (K-1) times left.
  2. This will yield a number with all unset bits but the ‘K’th bit. Now, we’ll perform logical AND of the shifted number with given number.
  3. All bits except the ‘K’th bit will yield 0, and ‘K’th bit will depend on the number. This is because, 1 AND 1 is 1. 0 AND 1 is 0.
