Question 3: Find the truth set in case of each of the following open sentences defined on N:

(i) x + 2 < 10

(ii) x + 5 < 4

(iii) x + 3 > 2

Solution:

(i)

Given: The open sentence x + 2 < 10 is defined on N.

Here N: {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, …….…}

At x = 1 ⇒ x + 2 = 3 < 10

At x = 2 ⇒ x + 2 = 4 < 10

At x = 3 ⇒ x + 2 = 5 < 10

At x = 4 ⇒ x + 2 = 6 < 10

At x = 5 ⇒ x + 2 = 7 < 10

At x = 6 ⇒ x + 2 = 8 < 10

At x = 7 ⇒ x + 2 = 9 < 10

At x = 8 ⇒ x + 2 = 10

x = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7} satisfies x + 2 <10.

So, the truth set of open sentence x + 2 < 10 defined on N : {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7}

(ii) The open sentence x + 5 < 4 is defined on N.

Here N: {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, …….…}

At x = 1 ⇒ 1 + 5 = 6 > 4

So, the truth set of open sentence x + 5 < 4 defined on N is an empty set, {}.

(iii) The open sentence x + 3 > 2 is defined on N.

Here N: {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, …….…}

At x = 1 ⇒ x + 3 = 4 > 2

At x = 2 ⇒ x + 3 = 5 > 2

At x = 3 ⇒ x + 3 = 6 > 2

At x = 4 ⇒ x + 3 = 7 > 2

At x = 5 ⇒ x + 3 = 8 > 2

At x = 6 ⇒ x + 3 = 9 > 2

At x = 7 ⇒ x + 3 = 10 > 2

And so on…

x = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7….} satisfies x + 3 > 2.

So, the truth set of open sentence x + 3 > 2 defined on N is an infinite set i.e. {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, ………}

Question 4: Let A = {2, 3, 5, 7}. Examine whether the statements given below are true or false.

(i) ∃ x ∈ A such that x + 3 > 9.

(ii) ∃ x ∈ A such that x is even.

(iii) ∃ x ∈ A such that x + 2 = 6.

(iv) ∀ x ∈ A, x is prime.

(v) ∀ x ∈ A, x + 2 < 10.

(vi) ∀ x ∈ A, x + 4 ≥ 11

Solution:

Given: A = {2, 3, 5, 7}

(i) ∃ x ∈ A such that x + 3 > 9.

We have to check whether there exists ‘x’ which belongs to ‘A’, such that x + 3 > 9.

When x = 7 ∈ A,

x + 3 = 7 + 3 = 10 > 9

So, ∃ x ∈ A and x + 3 > 9.

So, the given statement is TRUE.

(ii) ∃ x ∈ A such that x is even.

We have to check whether there exists ‘x’ which belongs to ‘A’, such that x is even.

x = 2, is an even number and 2 ∈ A.

So, the given statement is TRUE.

(iii) ∃ x ∈ A such that x + 2 = 6.

We have to check whether there exists ‘x’ which belongs to ‘A’, such that x + 2 = 6.

At x = 2 ⇒ x + 2 = 4 ≠ 6

At x = 3 ⇒ x + 2 = 5 ≠ 6

At x = 5 ⇒ x + 2 = 7 ≠ 6

At x = 7 ⇒ x + 2 = 9 ≠ 6

None of the values satisfy the equation.

So, the given statement is FALSE.

(iv) ∀ x ∈ A, x is prime.

We have to check whether for all ‘x’ which belongs to ‘A’, such that x is a prime number.

All ‘x’ which belongs to A = {2, 3, 5, 7} is a prime number.

All are prime numbers.

So, the given statement is TRUE.

(v) ∀ x ∈ A, x + 2 < 10.

We have to check whether for all ‘x’ which belongs to ‘A’, such that x + 2 < 10.

A = {2, 3, 5, 7}

At x = 2 ⇒ x + 2 = 4 < 10

At x = 3 ⇒ x + 2 = 5 < 10

At x = 5 ⇒ x + 2 = 7 < 10

At x = 7 ⇒ x + 2 = 9 < 10

∀ x ∈ A, x + 2 < 10, is a TRUE statement.

(vi) ∀ x ∈ A, x + 4 ≥ 11.

We have to check whether for all ‘x’ which belongs to ‘A’, such that x + 4 ≥ 11.

A = {2, 3, 5, 7}

At x = 2 ⇒ x + 4 = 6 ≥ 11

At x = 3 ⇒ x + 4 = 7 ≥ 11

At x = 5 ⇒ x + 4 = 9 ≥ 11

At x = 7 ⇒ x + 4 = 11 ≥ 11

Only for x = 7, statement is true.

∀ x ∈ A, x + 4 ≥ 11, is a FALSE statement.
