Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'll show you the first one. If it is raining, the temperature is greater than 32 F. If the temperature is greater than 32 F, then it is not freezing outside. From the two statements above, using the Law of Syllogism, you can conclude: If it is raining, then it is not freezing outside. Then using "It is raining." and the Law of Detachment, you can conclude: "It is not freezing outside."
