which is correct?

S1    +ve logic AND operation behaves as -ve logic OR operation.

S2    fxn f(A,B,C)= AB+BC+CA is a self dual fxn.

S2 is true but what is the explanation of S1, what does statement 1 want to say?

In positive logic: high voltage is logic 1, low voltage is logic 0

In negative logic: high voltage is logic 0, low voltage is logic 1

so according to this definition s1 is false?

Why?

Consider positive logic:

 a b a.b 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 1

 a b a+b 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1

Complement OR truth table we will get negative logic OR operation

 a b a+b 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0

This truth table is same as positive logic AND operation
So S1 is true.

got it..thanks

m last step me mistake kr ra tha..

AND Gate Truth Table :

A B A.B
High High High
High Low Low
Low High Low
Low Low Low

This table interpreted in +ive logic gives:

High → 1 and Low → 0

A B A.B
1 1 1
1 0 0
0 1 0
0 0 0

If the 1st table is interpreted in -ive logic then:

High → 0 and Low → 1

A B A.B
0 0 0
0 1 1
1 0 1
1 1 1

In above table A.B is 0 only when A and B both are 0 which is property of OR gate. Hence from above table we can conclude that AND gate in -ive logic system acts as OR gate.
