Ques. 1 Sol.

If U = {1,2,3,4,……} , P={2,4,6,…..} and Q = {1,3,5,…..} Verify De Morgan’s laws.

PC = {2,4,6…} QC = {1,3,5…}

So that PC U QC = P U Q = U (P ∩ Q) = O (P ∩ Q)C = U Therefore (P ∩ Q)C = PC U QC Now P U Q = U

(P U Q)C = UC = O P C ∩ QC = Q ∩ P = O Therefore (P U Q)C = PC ∩ QC

Ques. 2 Sol.

Show that p∧(~p∨~q) is neither a tautology nor a contradiction.

Truth table for p∧ ~q) as follows: (~p∨ p T T F F q T F T F ~p F F T T ~q F T F T (~p v ~q) F T T T
p∧ ~q) (~p∨

F T F F

The truth value of p∧ ~q) shows that the given compound proposition is neither (~p∨ tautology nor a contradiction.
Ques. 3 Prove that a non-empty subset H of a group G is a subgroup of 〈G,∗ 〉 if and only if for any pair of elements a, b∈H ⇒ a∗b-1∈H. Ans.

Let < H,* > be a subgroup < G,* > To prove V a, b, H, a*b-1 ∈ H V a, b, ∈ H, b-1 ∈ H (inverse Law < H,* >) a*b-1 ∈ H (closure law < H,* >) If < H,* > be a subgroup of < G,* >then V a, b, ∈ H, a*b-1 ∈ H

Ques. 4

Prove that in any group G the number of points of odd degree is even.

Proof Let v1, v2…vk denote the points of odd degree and w1, w2…wm denote the points

of even degree in G. By theorem,
∑ deg vi = 2q

Here, ∑ deg vi + ∑ deg wi = 2q which is even Further ∑ deg wi is even Hence ∑ deg vi is also even But deg vi is odd for each i. Hence k must be even

Ques. 5 Calculate the median for the following distribution Marks 20-30 30-40 40-50 50-60 60-70 frequency 6 10 40 20 10 Sol.
