    ~p means the negation of statement p. Statement p is It is not cold. The negation of p is: It is not NOT cold. That is, it is cold. >>It depends is incorrect. @tnjs28

    I do not know for sure if temperature can be relative. But in this case i think it is safe to say that it is. So would the negation of (p) 'depend' on what you are comparing the magnitude of temperature to? @Directrix

    I applied the rules of elementary symbolic logic. ~p is the negation of p and ~(~p) --> p

    but you also said that 'it depends' is a wrong answer
