Hi Shrikant, I wonder if your can help me with this:

1) Determine whether the argument is valid or invalid.

A tree as green leaves or the tree does not produce oxygen.
This tree has green leaves.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Therefore:. This tree does not produce oxygen.

2) Use Euler Diagrams to determine whether the following syllogism is valid or invalid.

Some senators are conservationists
No conservationists are pro-development
------------------------------------------
Therefore: some senators are not pro-development.

4) Determine the truth value of the following statement:

Rembrandt was a famous painter and some odd numbers are prime.
