**Ex 14.3 Class 11 Maths Question 1.**

For each of the following compound statements first identify the connecting
words and then break it into component statements.**(i)**All rational numbers are real and all real numbers are not complex.

**(ii)**Square of an integer is positive or negative.

**(iii)**The sand heats up quickly in the Sun and does not cool down fast at night.

**(iv)**x = 2 and x = 3 are the roots of the equation 3x

^{2}– x – 10 = 0.

**Solution:**

**(i)** The connecting word for the compound statement is ‘and’. The component
statements are:

p: All rational numbers are real.

q: All real numbers are not complex.

**(ii)** The connecting word for the
compound statement is ‘or’. The component statements are:

p: Square of an integer is positive.

q: Square of an integer is negative.

**(iii)** The connecting word for the
compound statement is ‘and’. The component statements are:

p: The sand heats up quickly in the Sun.

q: The sand does not cool down fast at night.

**(iv)** The connecting word for the
compound statement is ‘and’. The component statements are:

p: x = 2 is a root of the equation 3x^{2} – x – 10 = 0.

q: x = 3 is a root of the equation 3x^{2} – x – 10 = 0.

Maths Question 2.**

Identify the quantifier in the following statements and write the negation of
the statements.**(i)**There exists a number which is equal to its square.

**(ii)**For every real number x, x is less than x + 1.

**(iii)**There exists a capital for every state in India.

**Solution:**

**(i)** Here,
the quantifier is ‘there exists’.

The negation of the statement is: There does not exist a number which is equal
to its square.

**(ii)** Here,
the quantifier is ‘for every’.

The negation of the statement is: For at least one real number x, x is not less
than x + 1.

**(iii)** Here,
the quantifier is ‘there exists’.

The negation of the statement is: There exists a state in India which does not
have a capital.

**Ex 14.3 Class 11
Maths Question 3.**

Check whether the following pair of statements are negation of each other. Give
reasons for your answer.**(i)**x + y = y + x is true for every real numbers x and y.

**(ii)**There exists real numbers x and y for which x + y = y + x.

**Solution:**

Let p: x + y = y + x is true for every real numbers x and y.

q: There exists real numbers x and y for which x + y = y + x.

Now, ~p: There exists real numbers x and y for which x + y ≠ y + x.

Thus, ~p ≠ q.

Hence, the given statements
are not negation of each other.

**Ex 14.3 Class 11
Maths Question 4.**

State whether the “Or” used in the following statements is “exclusive” or
“inclusive”. Give reasons for your answer.**(i)**Sun rises or Moon sets.

**(ii)**To apply for a driving license, you should have a ration card or a passport.

**(iii)**All integers are positive or negative.

**Solution:**

**(i)** The
“Or” used in the given statement is “exclusive”. Since when sun rises, moon
does not set during day-time.

**(ii)** The
“Or” used in the given statement is “inclusive”. Since you can apply for a
driving license even if you have a ration card as well as a passport.

**(iii)** The
“Or” used in the given statement is “exclusive”. Since an integer is either
positive or negative, it cannot be both.
