(Marks: 35)

1. (a) Define a truth function. 1

(b) Let: Ice is cold, : Blood is green. Write the following sentences in symbolic form: 2

- Either ice is cold or blood is green.
- If blood is green then ice is not cold.

(c) Prove that is a tautology. 3

(d) Prove that every statement can be generated by only. 4

Or

Prove that

is a valid statement. 4

2. (a) Write the law of syllogism. 1

(b) Using predicates, write the following sentences in symbolic form: 2

- All teachers like all students.
- Only teachers like students.

(c) Test the validity of the following arguments: 3

All squares have equal sides.

A rhombus has equal sides.

Therefore, a rhombus is a square.

(d) Prove that is a valid consequence of the following premises: 4

Or

All men are mortal.

Ram is a man.

Hence Ram is mortal.
