A circuit outputs a digit in the form of $$4$$ bits. $$0$$ is represented by $$0000$$, $$1$$ by $$0001..., $$ $$9$$ by $$1001.$$ A combinational circuit is to be designed which takes these $$4$$ bits as input and outputs $$1$$ if the digit $$ \ge 5,$$ and $$0$$ otherwise. If only $$AND,$$ $$OR$$ and $$NOT$$ gates may be used, what is the minimum number of gates required?

Consider the following circuit composed of $$XOR$$ gates are non-inverting buffers.

The non-inverting buffers have delays $${\delta _1} = 2$$ $$ns$$ and $${\delta _2} = 4$$ $$ns$$ as shown in the figure. Both $$XOR$$ gates and all wires have zero delay. Assume that all gate inputs, outputs and wires are stable at logic level $$0$$ at time$$0.$$ If the following waveform is applied at input $$A$$, how many transition(s) (change of logic levels) occurs(s) at $$B$$ during the interval from $$0$$ to $$10$$ $$ns?$$

A logic network has two data inputs $$A$$ and $$B,$$ and two control inputs $${C_0}$$ and $${C_1}$$. It implements the function $$F$$ according to the following Table.

Implement the circuit using one $$4$$ to $$1$$ Multiplexor, one $$2$$-input Exclusive $$OR$$ gate, one $$2$$-input $$AND$$ gate, one $$2$$-input $$OR$$ gate and one Inverter.
