    Assuming you are in a learning process. Generally, that depends on ethernet slot time. While the minimum ethernet frame is based on the ethernet slot time which is 512 bit lengths/ 64 bytes. This is because anything that is shorter than the 64 bytes minimum is interpreted by receiving station as a frame resulting from a collision. By the way why are you so lazy to read your study books? Is there any reason that your faculty does not help you so much. Whatever it is there is no shortcut method to learn something. Try to understand/read your study books including other external books also.
