There is an old joke that goes something like this: “If God is love, love is blind, and Ray Charles is blind, then Ray Charles is God.” Explain, in the terms of first-order logic and predicate calculus, why this reasoning is incorrect. If the person who told you this joke was your grandmother, how would you respectfully explain this to her?

So D->C cannot become D->A, as C cannot be exchange for A as per the above reason.
