Let p, q, and r be the propositions
p: you get an A on the final exam.
q: You do every exercise in this book.
r: You get an A in this class.

How can I write these propositions using p, q, and r and logical connectives?

a.) You get an A in this class, but you do not do every excercise in this book.

b.) You get an A on the final, you do every excercise in this book, and you get an A in this class.

c.) To get an A in this class, it is necessary for you to get an A on the final.

d.) You get an A on the final, but you don't do every excercise in this book; nevertheless, you get an A in this class.

e.) Getting an A on the final and doing every excersise in this book is sufficient for getting an A in this class.

f.) You will get an A in this class if and only if you either do every excercise in this book or you get an A on the final.

a.) You get an A in this class, but you do not do every exercise in this book.

r ∧ ~q

b.) You get an A on the final, you do every exercise in this book, and you get an A in this class.

p ∧ q ∧ r

c.) To get an A in this class, it is necessary for you to get an A on the final.

r $\rightarrow$ p

d.) You get an A on the final, but you don't do every exercise in this book; nevertheless, you get an A in this class.

p ∧ ~ q ∧ r

e.) Getting an A on the final and doing every exercise in this book is sufficient for getting an A in this class.

( p ∧ q ) $\rightarrow$ r

f.) You will get an A in this class if and only if you either do every exercise in this book or you get an A on the final.

r ↔ ( q ∨ p )

what you didn't get?

the staement in the C is a little clever representation.. In simple way,if you get A in the Final then only it is possible to get A in the class,

So A in final implies A in class

No. Option C is r implies p. That is if you get an A in the class it implies you have got an A in final. But you can get an A in final and still not get an A in class as the given condition is necessary but not sufficient.

Determine whether following conditional statement is true or false -If 1+1 =3, then 2+2=4. According to me the answer should be false, but in book its given true. Can anyone explain how it is true?
