Find most significant set bit of a number

The most significant set bit of a number refers to the leftmost bit in a binary representation of the number that is set to 1. For example, in the binary representation of the number 9 (which is 1001), the most significant set bit is the bit in the fourth position from the right (i.e., the leftmost set bit), and its value is 2^3, or 8.

Knowing the position of the most significant set bit can be useful in many computer science applications, such as bitwise operations, algorithms for finding logarithms, and implementing data structures like tries and bitmaps.

MSB is the highest weighted bit in a number. Our goal is to find the MSB bit value of the given number. For example.
