A  $3 \times 8$ decoder with two enables inputs is to be used to address 8 blocks of memory. What will be the size of each memory block when addressed from a sixteen-bit bus with two MSBs used to enable the decoder?

$i)2k$                                           $ii)4k$                                       $iii)16k$                                     $iv) 64k$

What does “two enable inputs is to be used” mean? I am not able to visualize the circuit.

$2K ??$

Sorry for the delay.

Here, there are 16-bit bus addresses, So we can represent  $64 K$.

But two bit is used to enable the decoder. It left $16 K$.There are 8 blocks. So, the size of each block will $2K$.

How 2 bits just for enabling? Can you please draw circuit for the same? It will help me understand the question

Yes please provide a rough sketch of the circuit @kumar.dilip :(

I have this one and I don't understand how to proceed 1
ok, I will try.

A $3$ line to $8$ line Decoder is used to implement a $3$-variable Boolean function as shown in figure. The simplified form of output $Y$ is. $\bar{X}Y + \bar{Y}Z + XY\bar{Z}$ $\bar{X}Z +\bar{Y}Z + XYZ$ $X\bar{Y} + X\bar{Z} +\bar{X}YZ$ $X\bar{Y} + X\bar{Z} + \bar{X}Y\bar{Z}$
