@Lakshman Patel RJIT can we understand this question using propositional logic ??

like negation of (PQ OR XY) which will give (PQ)’ AND (XY)’.

$\text{Statement:}$ Either $\text{P}$ marries $\text{Q}$ or $\text{X}$ marries $\text{Y}$

Among the options below, the logical $\text{NEGATION}$ of the above statement is :

- $\text{P}$ does not marry $\text{Q}$ and $\text{X}$ marries $\text{Y}$
- Neither $\text{P}$ marries $\text{Q}$ nor $\text{X}$ marries $\text{Y}$
- $\text{X}$ does not marry $\text{Y}$ and $\text{P}$ marries $\text{Q}$
- $\text{P}$ marries $\text{Q}$ and $\text{X}$ marries $\text{Y}$

Best answer

The given statement is: Either $\text{P}$ marries $\text{Q}$ or $\text{X}$ marries $\text{Y}.$

The logical NEGATION of the above statement is : Neither $\text{P}$ marries $\text{Q}$ nor $\text{X}$ marries $\text{Y}.$

We can also write the above statement as $P$ does not marry $Q$ and $X$ does not marries $Y.$

So, the correct answer is $(B).$
