    Each switch has two positions: no and nc. With four such switches, we have 16 possible combinations.

    We have 2 motors; each motor has three states: off, forward, reverse. The possible combinations are 9.

    You have to map 16 possible switch combinations into 9 possible motor status. You need to enumerate all the possible combinations.
