Thank you SS for taking an interest in the article, but the changes were already made earlier. A demultiplexer takes a single input signal and selects one among the many output lines. A decoder like line decoder takes n digital binary number and decodes it into 2^n lines. Demultiplexers connect single source to one of the many multiple destination lines. Multiplexer is the exact opposite of a demultiplexer, whereas encoder is the exact opposite of decoder.
