why we use class c IP address most..

Answer / harish chopra

The only reason seems to be is, coz Class C has very less
number of host allocated and due to which the wastage of
IP's is very less.
For eg. even if you take complete subnet into use then also
at max the hosts will be 254.
now, 8 bits remained for hosts so as per the formula 2
power 8 - 2 and that comes to 256-2 = 254

so these host ip's are very less as compared to other
classes, therefore CLASS C is used more.

21 bits identify the network, with 2,097,154 networks (2 21
) theoretically possible. As addresses 0 and 2,097,151 are
reserved, 2,097,152 network addresses remain available for
assignment. As the specific host on the network is
identified in bits 24 through 31, as many as 254 (2 8
