Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it is a bit more intuitive if you define p = In Canada q= flies to Montreal so the statement can be written (not p) or (not q) use De Morgan's Law to write that as not (p and q) now negate that statement: not not (p and q) becomes p and q look for In Canada and flies to Montreal
