Consider the following Boolean expression for F:
F(P, Q, R, S) = PQ + P'QR + P'QR'S
The minimal sum-of-products form of F is
(A) PQ + QR + QS
(B) P + Q + R + S
(C) P’ + Q’ + R’ + S’
(D) P’R + P’R’S + P

F(P, Q, R, S) = PQ + P'QR + P'QR'S = Q(P + P'R + P'R'S) = Q(P + R + R'S) = Q(P + R + S) = PQ + QR + QS
Note that A + AB = A and A + A’B = A + B.
So, option (A) is correct.
