The AND gate is a logic circuit that requires all inputs to be TRUE at the same time in order for the output to be TRUE. 


True 


False 
8. 
In the OR gate, two switches are placed in parallel. If either or both of the switches are closed (view A), the lamp will light. The only time the lamp will not be lit is when both switches are open (view B). 


True 


False

9. 
The NOR gate is an OR gate with an inverter on the output. 


True 


False 
10. 
In DIGITAL LOGIC (positive or negative), the TRUE condition of a statement is represented by the logic 1 state and the FALSE condition is represented by the logic 0 state. 


True 


False 
11. 
The exclusive OR gate is a modified OR gate that produces a HIGH output when only one of the inputs is HIGH. 


True 


False 
12. 
Does the adder make use of the and gate. 


Yes

13. 
Flipflops are bistable multivibrators. 


True 


False 
14. 
The D FF is a twoinput FF. The inputs are the data (D) input and a clock (CLK) input. The clock is a timing pulse generated by the equipment to control operations. The D FF is used to store data at a predetermined time and hold it until it is needed. This circuit is sometimes called a delay FF. 


True 


False
