Look at the argument below. Which of the following symbolic statements shows the set-up 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

    A) [(p → q) ∧ ~q] ∴ p B)[(p → q) → q] ∴ p C)[(p → q) ∧ ~q] ∴ ~p D)[(p → q) ∧ q] ∴ p

    the negation symbol (NOT) is the tilde: ~ so if if "I am living at the lake": q then "I am NOT living at the lake": ?
