SOL 6.23

The output of causal system depends only on present and past states only. In option (A) y (0) depends on x ( 2) and x (4). In option (B) y (0) depends on x (1). In option (C) y (0) depends on x ( 1). In option (D) y (0) depends on x (5). Thus only in option (C) the value of y (t) at t = 0 depends on x ( 1) past value. In all other option present value depends on future value. Hence (C) is correct answer.
