1 (a) If a=√2 and b=√2, then a*b=2 which is rational.

(b) Kim Campbell is the only female prime minister in Canada.

(c) If x=-1, then x3=-1 but x2/5=1/5. So -1<1/5.

(d) If a+b=1 which is rational, but a=√2 and b=1-√2 both of which are irrational number.

2 (a) S is false. Counter example: if n=-2, then n/(n+1)=2 which is an integer.

(b) The converse can be ...
