 Says For all x  and all y (if (x is car and y is car) then either one of them  be true i.e. x= y or y=x)

 Inderectly:  say  There are atmost one cars

2. image:MST6/o2.JPG

Says there exist Two  car x and y  which are not same then all other car z are either same as x or same as y.

Indirectly : There are exactly two cars

in third case,what is the condition for 2 cars?

i mean if x=z and x=y are true then z=y and hence all the cars are same nd hence there is only 1 car.
