# Deduction with Compound Proposition

I have 5 Exercise and Each Exercise has 10 questions as you can see the example

Exercise A. Identify Types of Reasoning

In this exercise you are given a list of reasoning samples and asked to determine what type of reasoning each sample is.Please indicate your answer in the space to the right of the word â€œAnswerâ€.

Example 1: Information about DNA, RNA, and the proteins found in different species can be compared to establish taxonomic relationships.Therefore, information about DNA, RNA, and the proteins are found in different species.

Answer: Reasoning from a conjunctive proposition

Example 2: We will see the movie if we get tickets.We get tickets.Therefore, we will see the movie.Answer: Reasoning from a conditional proposition (Modus Ponens)

Exercise B. Evaluating Conjunctive Reasoning

In this exercise you are given a list of conjunctive reasoning samples and asked to determine which one is deductively valid and which one is not.Please indicate your answer in the space to the right of the word â€œAnswerâ€.

Example 1: Information about DNA, RNA, and the proteins found in different species can be compared to establish taxonomic relationships.Therefore, information about DNA, RNA, and the proteins are found in different species.

Example 2: Information about DNA, RNA, and the proteins are found in different species.Therefore, information about DNA, RNA, and the proteins found in different species can be compared to establish taxonomic relationships.

Exercise C. Evaluating Disjunctive Reasoning

In this exercise you are given a list of disjunctive reasoning samples and asked to determine which one is deductively valid and which one is not.Please indicate your answer in the space to the right of the word â€œAnswerâ€.

Example 1: Either Leslie is not sad or she’s a good actor.Leslie is a good actor.Therefore, she is sad.

Example 2: Either I will graduate in May or in January.I will graduate in January.So, I will not graduate in May.

Exercise D. Evaluating Conditional Reasoning

In this exercise you are given a list of conditional reasoning samples and asked to determine which one is deductively valid and which one is not.Please indicate your answer in the space to the right of the word â€œAnswerâ€.

Example 1: I will read the paper with breakfast as long as it arrives in time.The paper arrives in time.Therefore, I will read the paper with breakfast.

Example 2: I will wear the shoes provided they fit.The shoes donâ€™t fit.Therefore, I will not wear them.
