Consider the circuit shown below. The output of a 2:1 Mux is given by the function $(ac' + bc)$.

Which of the following is true?

  1. $f=X1'+X2$
  2. $f=X1'X2+X1X2'$
  3. $f=X1X2+X1'X2'$
  4. $f=X1+X2'$

g = (a and x1′) or (b and x1)
g = (1 and x1’) or (0 and x1)
g = x1’

f = ac’ + bc
f = (a and x2′) or (b and x2)
f = (g and x2′) or (x1 and x2)
f = x1’x2’ + x1x2

Best answer
g = x1'
So, f = ac' + bc

= x1'x2' + x1x2

So, (C).

What is the significance of ac'+bc here?

We don't need it to get the answer. So why it is mentioned in the question?
