What is the meaning of BIT in Encryption ?

hmm.. unless that is some acronym I never heard before, 
a bit in encryption is just a bit..  as in "eight bits make a byte".

How is asymmetric encrytion work? Is there a simple ducument to
describe this kind of encryption?

There a probably a million.
Try this:  go to www.howstuffworks.com and use the search function
to search for:    public key cryptography

That will give you quite a lot to start with.
