3/5If then(a) x<y ( B) x> y (C)x=y (D)noon of these Last edited by tony123 (20080122 06:21:59) #2 20080122 07:04:56
Re: 3/5(a) can be true; for example x can be 3 and y can be 5 #3 20080122 07:23:36
Re: 3/5I interpret (D) as "It is impossible to say that any previous statement is true", as opposed to "The previous statements are not true". Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #4 20080122 09:18:30
Re: 3/5Yes, I would also say (D) because you cannot rely on (A) being true, neither can you rely on (B). "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20080122 09:43:11
Re: 3/5
I would (now) also say (D). Last edited by Daniel123 (20080122 09:43:26) #6 20080124 00:51:10
Re: 3/5I too agree. (d) is the best option. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #7 20080124 04:06:54
Re: 3/5Fair point, if we're dealing with naturals then the answer would be (A). Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal.
