First reformat the XOR equation.
Step 1 :- A'B + AB' = [(A+B')' + (A'+B)'] using theorems Step 2 :- [((A')'+B')' + (A' + (B')')'] using theorems T7, T8 and T9

NOR equation = A’ B’
Digital logic gate conversion related interview questions.Lets start our discussion with conversion for xor from nor gate only. The truth tables of XOR and NOR gates are below.
Check the circuit for NOR to inverter (equivalent of NAND to inverter). So the complete circuit for XOR using NOR gates. Diagram shown above.
Reformat XOR equation by following steps below:
XOR is also know as Exclusive OR.
Step 1 :- A'B + AB' +AA’ + BB’ = [(A’+B') (A+B)] using postulate P4 and theorems T7, T8 and T9
Step 2 :- [(AB)'(A’B’)’] using theorems T7, T8 and T9
In step 2, we do invert of A and invert of B.
