Question

# Use the Law of Detachment to make a valid conclusion in the true situation.

Jim works every alternate day. He worked yesterday.

Hint:

### Law of Detachment states that if p q is true and it is given that p is true then we can conclude

that q is also true. Here, the statement is termed as Hypothesis and the statement q is termed as conclusion.

## The correct answer is: Hence, we can conclude that Jim’s next day of work is Tomorrow.

### It is given that Jim works every alternate day or we can say if Jim went to work on a day then his next day of work will be the day after the next day.

Consider the statement into two separate statements

p: Jim went to work on a day.

q: His next day of work will be the day after the next day

So we can write the given statement “if Jim went to work on a day then his next day of work will be the day after the next day” as:

We are given that Jim worked yesterday so we can conclude that his next day of work is Tomorrow.

Final Answer:

Hence, we can conclude that Jim’s next day of work is Tomorrow.
