    Why don't you check yourself? What is the output if ##A \overline B## (and choose whatever you like for C)?

    You are right. You can easily see that every input that includes B=0 gives a 0 output, when by the answer in red (A,B,C)=(1,0,0) for example should give 1.

    To get the textbook's answer, you need to restore a missing inverter so the upper AND gate receives ##\overline B## at its lower input.
