Let $\text{U}$ be a set and $\text{X, Y} \subseteq \text{U}$. Define operation twist by
$$\operatorname{twist}\text{(X, Y)} =(\text{X} \cap \text{Y}) \cup(\overline{\text{X}} \cap \overline{\text{Y}}).$$
Which of the following is/are True?

1. $\overline{\operatorname{twist}\text{(X, Y)}}=\operatorname{twist}(\overline{\text{X}}, \text{Y})$
2. $\overline{\operatorname{twist}\text{(X, Y)}}=\operatorname{twist}(\overline{\text{X}}, \overline{\text{Y}})$
3. $\operatorname{twist}(\text{X, Y})=\operatorname{twist}(\overline{\text{X}}, \text{Y})$
4. $\operatorname{twist}\text{(X, Y)}=\operatorname{twist}(\overline{\text{X}}, \overline{\text{Y}})$

twist $(\mathrm{X}, \mathrm{Y})$ is nothing but $\text{X} \odot \text{Y}$ which is complement of $\text{X} \Delta \text{Y}$.
So, $\text{twist(X,Y)}$ is the complement of Symmetric difference of $\text{X,Y.}$
Note that symmetric difference is also called Exclusive Or.
We know that $\text{X} \odot \text{Y}=\overline{\text{X}} \odot \overline{\text{Y}}$, So, Option D is correct.
Similarly, we know that $\overline{\text{X} \odot \text{Y}}=\overline{\text{X}} \odot \text{Y}$, So, Option A is correct.

we will see why
