The Boolean expression for the circuit of the given figure

A. A {F + (B + C) (D + E)}
B. A [F + (B + C) (DE)]
C. A + F + (B + C) (D + E)]
D. A [F + (BC) (DE)]

Answer: Option A


B and C in parallel give B + C. Similarly D and E in parallel give D + E. (B + C) in series with (D + E) give (B + C) (D + E). Since F is in parallel we get F + (B + C) (D + E). Finally A is in series. Therefore we get A[F + (B + C) (D + E)].

A counter has N flip flops. The total number of states are

A. N
B. 2 N
C. 2N
D. 4 N

Answer: Option C


One flip-flop means 2 states and N flip-flops means 2N states.


Out of S, R, J, K, Preset, Clear inputs to flip flops, the synchronous inputs are

A. S, R, J, K only
B. S, R, Preset, Clear only
C. Preset, Clear only
D. S, R only

Answer: Option A


Preset and clear inputs are not applied in any fixed sequence.
