c) 3
d) 4
3. Answer the following Short Questions 5x6=30
a. Using two 3 to 8 decoders and basic gates as required, design a circuit that takes as input a number between
0-15 and produces as output 1 if the input is a prime number and 0 otherwise. (The outputs of the decoders
are active low)

b. Design a 3 input NOR gate using only one 4x1 Mux.

4

c. Design an arithmetic unit which takes two 4-bit numbers A &B and performs the following functions based
on the values of S
1
and S
0
.

S
1
S
0
Output function
0 0 A+B'
0 1 A+B
1 0 A+B'+1
1 1 A+B+1
Here “+” means addition operation. Use only one 7483 IC (4-bit adder) and XOR gates.

d. Construct a J K flip-flop using D flip-flop, a 2-to-1-line multiplexer and an inverter.

e. Assume a system gets series of numbers as input. If an odd number comes after an even number, then output
indicates 1 and vice versa. Otherwise, the output will be 0 (i.e. odd after odd and even after even). Design a
circuit that will fulfill the above requirement.
