Assume that the given statement q is false.

The statement becomes: If n is a real number with n > 3, then n^2 < 9.

Therefore n>3 and n is a real number.

\\ \therefore n^2 > 3^2 \\ \implies n^2 > 9

This is a contradiction.

Therefore our assumption is wrong.

Thus, the given statement q is true.
