How many types of propositions are there?
How do I find tautology?
If you are given any statement or argument, you can determine if it is a tautology by constructing a truth table for the statement and looking at the final column in the truth table. If all of the truth values in the final column are true, then the statement is a tautology.
What is not a proposition?
This kind of sentences are called propositions. If a proposition is true, then we say it has a truth value of “true”; if a proposition is false, its truth value is “false”. Similarly “x = x” is not a proposition because we don’t know what “x” represents hence what “=” means.
Which proposition is tautology?

What is Proposition and its types?
Proposition is a declarative/informative sentence. 5. Kinds of proposition: Simple proposition Complex Proposition Simple proposition: A proposition that does not contain any other proposition as a component part. Complex proposition: A proposition that contains another proposition as a component.
What are the truth values of a proposition?
A proposition has only two possible values: it is either true or false. We often abbreviate these values as T and F, respectively. Given a proposition p, we form another proposition by changing its truth value….2.1: Propositions.
Which statement is a proposition?
A proposition is a statement that is either true or false (not both). We say that the truth value of a proposition is either true (T) or false (F). “Elephants are bigger than mice.”
Do you put a comma between repeated words?
When the same word is repeated with the same meaning, the rule is that there is a comma between the words. When the same word is repeated for clarification or definition, for lack of a better description, the first time it is quoted with no comma.
What is a good value proposition?
