    Take a look at the E^ line. When it is low, it provides a partial enable for all the decoder AND gates. If high, all the AND gates are broken, so the output will be low.

    All that it says is that the output will conduct Ground (will be driven LOW) when the Enable input is HIGH.

    In other words, when 1 comes in the Enable terminal, the output will stay to 0, no matter what the other input pins will be.

    Another word ordering is that the MUX will work only when Enable is LOW, otherwise the output will be LOW.
