Solution Preview

The XOR operation means "exclusive or". For a single bit operation the result of XOR is 0 if both bits are the same and 1 otherwise. Here is a truth table for a one-bit binary XOR:

A B (A XOR B)
--------------------
0 0 0
0 1 1
1 0 1
1 1 0

For a bit string the XOR is done each bit at a time. This example shows the XOR operation between two 4-bit ...
