There can be two cases and truth table can be formed in two ways.If both the switches are in same state the output can be "ON State" or if both the output are in opposite state the output can be in "OFF State".

Truth table does not seems to be correct.

Your truth table shows that if A=1 there is no way that B can turn the bulb off, yet specs say bulb status should be able to be set independent of other switch.
