Can u clear my query,
What exactly is the difference between the radix 2 and radix 4 and how the
number of computations vary.
Thanks in advance.

Radix 2 and Radix 4
The radix is simply the base of the number system you want to use.
Therfore, when you consider the logarithmic scale, any number in radix
4 system is half the value it has in the radix 2 system.
As regards your question about the number of computations, I am not
sure in what respect you have posed this question.
To my understanding..
The decimal number system that we all use has radix 10
meaning u have 0 to 9 numbers to count on and then 10
Radix 2 will be number system with only two digits
0 and 1. so decimal number 2 will be represented as
10 and 3 as 11 and so on
For radix 4 u will have numbers 0 1 2 and 3 in ur
number system and there u will represent number 4 as
10 and number 5 as 11 and so on... so I think the
other solution given is not correct as all values are
not going to be half!
0 and 1 have same value in both number systems!
Hope it helps
