For the circuit shown below, determine the Output voltage (Assume β=5, differential input resistance=12 kΩ)

(a) 4.33v

(b) 2.33v

(c) 3.33v

(d) 1.33v

I got this question during an interview.

The question is from Differential Amplifier and Circuit Configuration topic in chapter Operational Amplifier of Linear Integrated Circuits

Accurate option is (c) 3.33v

Here's an easy explanation: From the circuit dig, RC=10kΩ, Vin1= 1.3v and Vin2=0.5v,

 Differential input resistance = 2 βre,

⇒ 12kΩ = 2×5×Re

⇒ Re = 1.2 kΩ

Output voltage Vo = RC/2Re(Vin1-Vin2)

⇒ Vo =  10kΩ/(2 ×1.2kΩ) × (1.3v-0.5v)

⇒ Vo = 3.33v.
