»

This set of Computer Fundamentals Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Boolean Functions”.

1. Boolean Function is of the form of ________
a) Truth values
b) K=f(X,Y,X)
c) Algebraic Expression
d) Truth Table

Explanation: The boolean function is of the form of algebraic expressions or truth table. A boolean function is of the form as that of option K=f(X,Y,X). The result obtained from a boolean function can be a truth value or a fallacy.

2. The result of X+X.Y is X.
a) True
b) False

Explanation: This is a boolean expression. It can be evaluated as :
X+X.Y = X(1+Y) = X.
Since 1+Y=1 by boolean laws.

3. In the boolean function w=f(X,Y,Z), what is the RHS referred to as ________
a) right hand side
b) expression
c) literals
d) boolean

Explanation: The RHS is commonly referred to as the expression. The symbols X, Y and Z are commonly referred to as the literals of the function.

4. The general form for calculating the number of rows in a truth table is ________
a) 2n
b) 2n+1
c) 2n
d) 2n+1

Explanation: The general form for the calculation of rows in a truth table is 2n . Here, n= number of literals in the function.

5. The number of literals in the expression F=X.Y’ + Z are _____________
a) 4
b) 3
c) 2
d) 1

Explanation: Literals the generally the number of variables used in any boolean expression. Here, since there are 3 variables X, Y and Z, therefore the answer is 3.

6. The complement term for X’.Y’.Z + X.Y will be _____________
a) XYZ’+X’Y’
b) (X+Y+Z’)(X’+Y’)
c) (X+Y+Z’)(X’+Y)
d) (X+Y+Z’)(X’+Y)

Explanation: The OR and AND operators are interchanged. The complement terms are reduced to normal terms and the result is obtained.

7. What is the complement of X’Y’Z?
a) X+YZ
b) X’+Y+’Z’
c) X+Y+Z’
d) XYZ’

Explanation: The complement is obtained by converting the complement terms to normal terms and vice versa. Also, the OR and AND operators are interchanged. Here, X’Y’Z gets converted to X+Y+Z’.

8. The minterm of any expression is denoted by ___________
a) Mt
b) m
c) M
d) min

Explanation: The variables forming an AND term is generally the minterm. It is denoted by m. (lower case letter).

9. The min term when X=Y=Z=0 is _____________
a) x’+y’+z’
b) xyz
c) x’y’z’
d) x+y+z

Explanation: There minterm expression is obtained using the AND term. Here, when X=Y=Z=0, the expression obtained is x’y’z’.

10. The max term when X=Y=Z=1 is ________
a) x’+y’+z’
b) xyz
c) x’y’z’
d) x+y+z

Explanation: The max term consists of variables forming an OR term. Here, when X=Y=Z=1, the expression is x’+y’+z’.
