Q2) The set S of numbers has the following properties:

• If p is in S then 1/p is in S

• If both p and q are in S, then so is (p + q)

Explanation: Statement i. Ravi, one of the sales Manager’s colleagues, tells him Sushil did not visit the client either on Thursday or on Tuesday. We can say sunil will visit on Monday, Wednesday , Friday and Saturday so statement 1 is not sufficient

Vikash, one of the sales manager’s colleague, tells him that Sushil visited the client 2 days before Ravi contacted the client which was the day after Monday. By using only statement 2 , 2 days before Monday will be Saturday hence II alone is sufficient .

P=S , P<R , hence S< R , so conclusion I wrong

p@T , p is not equal to T ,

p = s, s is not equal to T , hence statement II is correct
