1. Homework Statement

This is the sample answer to the circuit they ask to draw. I get the comparators, the inverter and the Gate. That’s all clear.

Then they wanted a switch that needs to be used to end the sound alarm, regardless of comparator output. I assume this the box labelled M. What component could that be? Surely it’s not a motor. Google and Databooklet didn’t help, so I would appreciate any advice as to what component that Box prior to the speaker could be.

It's a Set/Reset flip flop.
I don't know where the "M" comes from. "Multivibrator" perhaps??
