Let $p$: The banana is green. $q$: The banana is not ready to eat. In symbols, the given statement is: $p \wedge q$ RECALL: $\neg(p \wedge q) = \neg p \vee \neg q$ Note that: $\neg p$: The banana is not green. $\neg q$: The banana is ready to eat. Thus, the negation of the given statement is: The banana is not green or it is ready to eat.
