some basic facts about propositional logic:logical connectives.tautology, and it is also called a valid sentence.Contradiction.Where is Rohini“, “How are you“, “What is your name“, are not propositions.Logical Connectives:Negation:A sentence such as ¬ P is called negation of P. A literal can be either Positive literal or negative literal.Conjunction:A sentence which has∧connective such as,P ∧ Qis called a conjunction.Disjunction:A sentence which has ∨ connective, such asP ∨ Q. is called disjunction, where P and Q are the propositions.Implication:A sentence such as P → Q, is called an implication. Implications are also known as if-then rules.Biconditional:A sentence such asP⇔ Q is a Biconditional sentence, example If I am breathing, then I am alive
