In which of the following gates, the output is 1, if and only if at least one input is 1?
A.  NOR 
B.  AND 
C.  OR 
D.  NAND 
Option: C Explanation : In OR gate we need atleast one bit to be equal to 1 to generate the output as 1 because OR means any of the condition out of two is equal to 1 which means if atleast one input is 1 then it shows output as 1 . Number of 1's in input may be more than one but the output will always be 1 in OR gate. So the answer is 'C'. Click on Discuss to view users comments. ali raza said: (10:34pm on Sunday 26th May 2013)

What is the minimum number of twoinput NAND gates used to perform the function of two input OR gate ?
A.  one 
B.  two 
C.  three 
D.  four 
Option: C Explanation : Y=A+B. This is the equation of OR gate. We require 3 NAND gates to create OR gate. We can also write
After 1^{st} NAND operation So we need 3 NAND gates. Click on Discuss to view users comments. meena vinay said: (10:45pm on Tuesday 21st April 2015)
the ouput after ist NAND and third NAND is same.So the answer is not correct

After first nand gate as well we are getting or answer .So the answer shd be after one nand gate

when we see the implementation of OR gate using NAND gate it is clearly saying that the minimum number of 2 input required are 3.
