Question

Examine whether the following logical statement pattern is tautology, contradiction or contingency.

[(p → q) ∧ q] → p

Solution

Consider the statement pattern: [(p → q) ∧ q] → p

Thus the truth table of the given logical statement:   [(p → q) ∧ q] → p

p q p → q (p → q) ∧ q [(p → q) ∧ q] → p
T T T T T
T F F F T
F T T T F
F F T F T

From the above truth table we can say that given logical statement: [(p → q) ∧ q] → p is contingency.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
