    How can one avoid shorting an input to a TTL Logic Gate?

    My answer:

    Slightly adding large current to the gate.

    Depending on what you mean by large, doing what you suggest has a good chance of destroying the device. Is that your intention?

    What does it mean to short an input?
    To what are you shorting the input?

    As stated, your question and your "answer" make absolutely no sense whatsoever. Try again with a clear, detailed description of exactly what it is you are trying to determine, then we may be able to help you.

    Is this the question exactly as given by your instructor?
    Then tell your instructor that the question makes no sense at all.

    My guess (and that's all it can be with the information given) is that it is talking about overriding an input that has been hard tied either HI or LO.
