Consider the CMOS circuit shown, where the gate voltage of the n-MOSFET is increased from zero, while the gate voltage of the p-MOSFET is kept constant at 3 V. Assume that, for both transistors, the magnitude of the threshold voltage is 1 V and the product of the transconductance parameter and the $$\left(\frac WL\right)$$ ratio, i.e. the quantity $$\mu C_{ox}\left(\frac WL\right)$$ , is 1 mAV-2.
Estimate the output voltage V0 for VG =1.5 V. [Hints: Use the appropriate current-voltage equation for each MOSFET, based on the answer]

B
$$\left(4+\frac1{\sqrt2}\right)V$$
C
$$\left(4-\frac{\sqrt3}2\right)V$$
