Look at the argument below. Which of the following symbolic statements shows the setup used to find the validity of the argument?
If it is July, then I am living at the lake.
I am not living at the lake.
Therefore, it is not July.
p: It is July.
q: I am living at the lake.
A) [(p → q) ∧ ~q]
∴ p
B)[(p → q) → q]
∴ p
C)[(p → q) ∧ ~q]
∴ ~p
D)[(p → q) ∧ q]
∴ p
