This Kmap is equivalent to two anwsers on a question that only allows one response. Which one should I choose?

Hi Chris,
Glad to see you on here!

You are exactly right that two of the options are equivalent…but only one is correct, as a matter of convention.

Take a look at this discussion from a few months ago when another student made the same observation…and I think you’ll see why one answer is technically correct.

Let us know if you have any other questions!
Jesse

Thank you for the insight!
