An odd-parity circuit with 2n2n inputs can be built with 2n−12n−1 XOR gates. Describe two different structures for this circuit, one of which gives a minimum worst-case input to output propagation delay and the other of which gives a maximum. For each structure, state the worst-case number of XOR-gate delays, and describe a situation where that structure might be preferred over the other.
