@Vikalp Shrivastava, understand the question correctly.

The output has to be '1' when only one input is '1'and the other input has to be '0'. both inputs are NOT low or high simultaneously as per the question given.

Truth table for EXOR gate:

in1 in2 out

0 0 0

0 1 1

1 0 1

1 1 0

Truth table for OR gate:

in1 in2 out

0 0 0

0 1 1

1 0 1

1 1 1(condition violated-out is 1 when both inputs are 1)

Truth table for NAND gate:

in1 in2 out

0 0 1(condition violated-out is 1 when both inputs are 0)

0 1 1

1 0 1

1 1 0

OR gate, nand gate also provides high output when its one input is low so how you can tell only ex-or gate. And combinations for nand are 0, 1=1; 1, 0=1 and for or gate are 0+1=1; 1+0=1.
