Hey I answered these questions wondering if they are correct.

For questions 1 through 4 your complex statement is "Dogs are mammals."

1. What is p?

A- Something is a dog
B-Something is a mammal
C-Dog
D-Dogs are
E-are mammals

2-B
2. What is q?
A-Something is a dog
B-Something is a mammal
C-Mammal
D-Dogs are
E-are mammals
F-If something is not a dog

3.F
3. "If something is not a dog, then it is not a mammal" is the:

A-Contrapositive
B-Converse
C-Statement
D-Counterexample
E-Counterstatement
F-Inverse

4.D

4. ~q => ~p for this statement is:
A-If it is a dog, then it is a mammal.
B-If it is a mammal, then it is a dog.
C-If it is not a dog, then it is not a mammal.
D-If it is not a mammal, then it is not a dog.
E-not dog, not mammal
F-hot dog

On 5 through 7 your complex statement is "If x2>10, then x>0."

5-A

5. "If x > 0, then x^2 > 10" is the:
A-Converse
B-Counterexample
C-Contrapositive
D-Counterpositive

A-Converse
B-Counterexample
C-Contrapositive

7- B

7. "x = - 4" would be an example of a
A-Converse
