The key to the incorrectness of the statement lies with the word "exactly." See

I hope this helps. thanks for asking.

It is not unlikely to be true, it can have exactly 1,200 mb of memory. 1000mb-1gb. So he could possibly have 1gb and 200mb of memory. :)

Answer: The reason this is unlikely true is due to the 1200MB of RAM. RAM comes in Increments. The lowest being 64MB. However to clear up the picture for you, here is how RAM is Divided, you have 256MB(Thats One Stick) Than 512MB(One or Two Sticks) Or 1GB = 1024MB. There is no way you can get 1200 even.

Count in increments of 256MB
