All functions in Excel are build the same way Function(Argument1, Argument2, Argument3, etc.)
First the function to use is set, and then follow the arguments, separated by comma.
The argument list start after ( and the function ends with ).
The IF function has 3 arguments, Condition, Do when condition is true, Do when condition is false.
The OR function can have a number of arguments, but the function itself must be specified before the arguments.
So the OR function will be like this OR(A1="A", A1="B"), and it can be continued with more arguments OR(A1="A", A1="B", A1="C", A1="D").
Even functions without arguments must have the start and end parenthesis, like PI().

Together
IF(OR(A1="A", A1="B"), 1, 0)
