Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for the statement to be true, either (p^q) or (p ^ ~ r) has to be true.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0p^q is true iff both p and q are true, but q is not, so p ^ q is false.. p ^ ~r is true iff p is true and r is false, which is the case. so p ^ ~r is true
