(a) The provided compound statement can be written in simple statements as\[p,q,r\]. Here, \[p,q,r\]represents two simple statements: \[p:\]I miss class. \[q:\] They take attendance \[r:\] There are pop quizzes. Therefore, the provided compound statement can be written in the symbolic form as: \[\sim p\leftrightarrow \left( q\vee r \right)\] (b) The truth table is as follows: c) So, from the truth table it can be stated that when the component of provided compound statement\[\sim p\leftrightarrow \left( q\vee r \right)\] has different truth value, then only resultant statement is false. Therefore, the statement is true when p is true and q and r are false.
