Please not that what follows are solutions intended for checking your work. Despite being
correct, some of these solutions would not receive full credit were they to be given on an exam.
In particular, the solutions to the true/false questions would not receive full credit on the exam
because although correct counterexamples are given, they are not fully explained.
