MIPS...checking least significant bit.

I'm working on an assignment and have reached a road block. If I have a 16 bit integer like:

0000 0000 0000 0100

how would I check to see what the value in the LEAST significant bit is? Basically, how would I check to see if the least significant bit is 0 or 1? How would I code it? I am a beginner at MIPS...is there a simple instruction that detects this? Please help.

    Don't know MIPS myself, but you could use binary and to check.
    LSB will be checking "if (number & 1)", only then in assembly code.

    The way I see it... Well, it's all pretty blurry
