Answer any FIVE full questions choosing at least TWO questions from each part.


1. (a) Using Karnaugh map simplify the following Boolean expression and give the implementation of the same using :

(i) NAND gates only (SOP form)  ii) NOR gates only (POS form) f (A, B, C*D).= ]Tm (°> 2, 4, 5, 12, 14) + dc (8, 10).

b. Find the prime implicantes for the Boolean expression using Quine Me Clusky’s method.

F (w, X, Y, Z) = £m (1, 3,6, 7, 8, 9,10,12,13, 14).

c. Explain the principle of duality.
