Q. Let $S$ be a non-empty subset of $R$. Consider the following statement: $p:$ There is a rational number $x \in S$ such that $x>0$ which of the following statements is the negation of the statement p? (1) There is a rational number $x \in$ S such that $x \leq 0$ (2) There is no rational number $x \in S$ such that $x \leq 0$ (3) Every rational number $x \in S$ satisfies $x \leq 0$ (4) $x \in S$ and $x \leq 0 \Rightarrow x$ is not rational.

Sol. (3) Given $\mathrm{S} \subseteq \mathrm{R}$ and $\mathrm{p}=$ There is a rational number $\mathrm{x} \in \mathrm{S}$ such that $\mathrm{x}>0$ then $\sim \mathrm{p}:$ Any rational number $\mathrm{x} \in \mathrm{S}$ such that $\mathrm{x}$ $\not>$ 0 i.e. $\sim \mathrm{p}:$ Every rational number $\mathrm{x} \in \mathrm{S}$ satisfy $\mathrm{x} \leq 0$

Q. Consider the following statements p : Suman is brilliant q : Suman is rich r : Suman is honest The negation of the statement “Suman is brilliant and dishonest if and only if Suman is rich” can be expressed as :- ( 1)$\sim \mathrm{q} \leftrightarrow \sim \mathrm{p} \wedge \mathrm{r}$ ( 2)$\sim(\mathrm{p} \wedge \sim \mathrm{r}) \leftrightarrow \mathrm{q}$ ( 3)$\sim \mathrm{p} \wedge(\mathrm{q} \leftrightarrow \sim \mathrm{r})$ ( 4)$\sim(\mathrm{q} \leftrightarrow(\mathrm{p} \wedge \sim \mathrm{r}))$ [AIEEE-2011]

Sol. (2,4) Given Statement : $(\mathrm{p} \wedge \sim \mathrm{r}) \Leftrightarrow \mathrm{q}$ Negations of $\mathrm{p} \Leftrightarrow \mathrm{q}$ are $\sim(\mathrm{p} \Leftrightarrow \mathrm{q}), \sim(\mathrm{q} \Leftrightarrow \mathrm{p})$ $\sim \mathrm{p} \Leftrightarrow \mathrm{q}$ and $\sim \mathrm{q} \Leftrightarrow \mathrm{p}$ Hence negations of given statement are $\sim(\mathrm{q} \Leftrightarrow(\mathrm{p} \wedge \sim \mathrm{r}))$ and $\sim(\mathrm{p} \wedge \sim \mathrm{r}) \Leftrightarrow \mathrm{q}$

Q. The only statement among the followings that is a tautology is : ( 1) $\mathrm{q} \rightarrow[\mathrm{p} \wedge(\mathrm{p} \rightarrow \mathrm{q})]$ (2) $\mathrm{p} \wedge(\mathrm{p} \vee \mathrm{q})$ (3) $\mathrm{p} \vee(\mathrm{p} \wedge \mathrm{q})$ (4) $[\mathrm{p} \wedge(\mathrm{p} \rightarrow \mathrm{q})] \rightarrow \mathrm{q}$ [AIEEE-2011]

Q. The negation of the statement “If I become a teacher, then I will open a school”, is : (1) I will not become a teacher or I will open a school. (2) I will become a teacher and I will not open a school. (3) Either I will not become a teacher or I will not open a school. (4) Neither I will become a teacher nor I will open a school.
