Q 01: Fing the argument form for the following argument and determine whether it is valid Can we conclude that the conclusion is true if the premises are sure?

If Socrates is human, then Socrates is mortal. Socrates is human Socrates is mortal. (3)

Also verify the argument by using the truth table.

Q #02: Show, that the hypotheses “it is not sunny this afternoon and it is colder than yesterday.” we will go swimming only if it is sunny,” “if we donot go swimming then we will take a canoe trip” and “if we take a canoe trip the we will be home by sunset” leads to the conclusion “we will be home by sunset”. (3)


  1. a) Check whether the following expressions are functions 1) Rx)=1/x 2) Rx)=x 3) f(x)=(x² + 1)¹²
  2. b) Determine whether each of these functions is a bijection from R to R. 1) f(x)=2x+1 2) f(x)=x²+1

c) Classify the functions given below whether these are one to one or ont or both

Q 04: Let A- (1, 2, 3, 4, 5), B- (5.6, 7) and C-(a, b) a) Find all the subsets of C.

  1. b) Find the power set of A.
  2. c) Whether A, B and C are disjoint sets? d) What is the cardinality of AUBUC

A Construct the truth table of the compound proposition (PQ) — (P/Q) h Let P and Q be the Propositions where P: it is below freezing and Q: It is snowing, write the propositions using P. Q and logical

1) It is below freezing and snowing. connectives

2) It is below freezing but not snowing. 3) It is not below freezing and it is not snowing.

4) If it is below freezing, it is also snowing.

5) It is either below freezing or it is snowing, but it is not snowing if it is below freezing State which rule of inference is used in this argument if it rains today then we will not have a barbecue today. If we do not have a barbecue today then we will have a barbecue tomorrow. Therefore it it rains today then we will have a barbecue tomorrow. d) Use rule of inference to show that the hypotheses “Randy works hard” “If randy works hard, then he is a dull boy” and “If Randy is a dull boy, then he will not get a job” imply the conclusion “Randy will not get the job”.
