#### Answer

Assuming that variables $a, b, c,$ and $d$ are stored in memory locations $100,$ $101,102,$ and $103,$ respectively: $\begin{array}{llll} {\text {Memory}} & {\text {} } & {\text {Address} } & {\text {} }\\ {\text {Location }} & {\text {Op Code} } & {\text {Field} } & {\text {Comment} }\\ {50} & {\text { LOAD }} & {100} & {\text { Register } R \text { now contains the value of } a} \\ {51} & {\text { SUBTRACT }} & {104} & {R \text { now contains the value } a-1} \\ {52} & {\text { STORE }} & {100} & {\text { Store the result into } a} \end{array}\\$
