    Dont know if this is a trick question but what are the two basic circuits in any electronic controller I would say input,output or power,modulating
    Other choices amplifer, bridge-control power,modulating,proportional

    I would think it needs a bit more clarification and definition.
    If talking a closed loop system, then PID loop should be included, Proportional touched on it.

    That was all that was given in the question, I think its one of those trick questions that can't correctly be answered

    If electronic control in the realm of thermodynamics then I would think details of a PID loop should be featured?

    Go to the course textbook. This sounds like a question culled from the pages of the textbook. "THIS, and THAT, are the two basic circuits in any electronic controller"

    My guess would be, Open loop, and closed loop(feedback) circuits.

    My money is on there being a sentence in the textbook with those exact words in it. When you find it, you will have found the answer the instructor wants to hear, whether it is sensible or not. :)
