Tautology -

A statement pattern is called tautalogy, if it is always true, whatever may be the truth values of constitute statements.

(p\wedge q)\leftrightarrow r is true

Case 1  p\wedge q is true and r is true It is not possible as q is false

Case 2    p\wedge q is false and r is false

\Rightarrow p\equiv T/F

r\equiv F

p\vee r\rightarrow p\wedge r\Rightarrow T or F \rightarrow F which may be T/F

p\wedge r\rightarrow p \vee r\Rightarrow F \rightarrow T/F which is always True. 


Option 1)

 

(p \vee r)\rightarrow (p\wedge r)

Option 2)

 

p\wedge r

Option 3)

 

p \vee r

Option 4)

 

(p \wedge r)\rightarrow (p\vee r)
