inconsistent, or actuality-functionally contingent: answer due to the fact that the column under the principal operator '-' consists completely of F's, the wff is if there is not any possible obstacle in which its conclusion is false while its premises are authentic. Now a fact desk is in effect an exhaustive record of viable situations. As a consequence if we put now not only a single wff on a truth table however an complete argument kind, we can use the desk to check whether or not that kind is legitimate. If the form turns out to be legitimate, then (seeing that through definition a valid form is one all situations of which are valid; see part 3.1) any instance of it have got to be valid as well.
