02. A sketch of an automated water system of a green house is given below. Answer the questions about it

A and B are a moisture sensor and a temperature sensor respectively and C is a manual switch. Signals are given to the water supply system from the Logic circuit according to the input signals from the A, B and C sensors to open the water supply outlet to the field. (If the output signal from the logic circuit = 1, it opens the water outlet and if it is zero it does not open the water supply.(Moist soil = 1, high temperature=1, Manual switch open (on)=1)

logic diagram
