22. If the inputs are both 1, analyse the outputs as shown on the diagram and point out, if any, the error.

The last output C should be a 1 and 0 (e.g. 1,0) because it has more than one input coming in

There are no errors. The outputs are all shown correctly

The output after the NOT gate at the top should be a 1 because it inverts the 0 to a 1

The last output C should be 0, because a 0 and 1 give a 0.

37. Read the following excerpt and see if you can fill in the blanks.
```Learning tip about logic gates:
===============================
In a computer, we can also use a gate to control a flow and achieve
an end goal. We control the flow of an electric current as it goes
running around a circuit.
This gate in the world of digital electronics is known as a transistor
and can be in one of two states, on or off, or open or closed if you
like to think of it as a gate.
When a transistor is on, or open, then an electric current can flow through.
And when it’s off, then ____________________```

several electrical signals get through

no gates remain open

no current flows

a single electrical signal gets through

38. This excerpt explains how it all fits together. Fill in the blanks and be sure to read it all!
```Excerpt that explains how it all fits together
==================================================
When you string a bunch of these transistors together, then you
get what’s called a ____________, which lets you add, subtract,
multiply, and divide binary numbers in any way imaginable.
In a physical circuit,
these logic gates have:

Inputs.
=======
All logic gates require some kind of input value so that they
have numbers to compare. These figures come in the form of voltages. When
your input voltage is 0V, then it’s considered to be low, or 0. And when
you have a voltage of 5V as an input, then this is deemed to be high, or 1.

Outputs.
=========
Once a logic gate has a chance to process your input, it can then
make a decision on whether to open its gate or keep it closed. This output is
entirely determined by the type of logic gate you’re using, and some will only
open if you have two high voltages as an input, whereas others will only open
if you have a low voltage but not a high voltage as an input.```
