GATE | Gate IT 2008 | Question 8

Consider the following Boolean function of four variables

f(A, B, C, D) = Σ(2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13)

The function is
(A) independent of one variable
(B) independent of two variables
(C) independent of three variable
(D) dependent on all the variables


Answer: (A)

Explanation:  



The Karnaugh map solutions of the given function can be obtained in two ways. These are the minimal functions that can be obtained. Thus the functions obtained are independent of variable “D”.

A’B’ A’B AB AB’
00 01 11 10
A’B’ 00 1 1
A’B 01 1 1
AB 11 1 1
AB’ 10 1 1 1 1

A’C+AC’+AB’

 

A’B’ A’B AB AB’
00 0 1 11 10
A’B’ 00 1 1
A’B 01 1 1
AB 11 1 1
AB’ 10 1 1 1 1

A’C+AC’+B’C
