▲19. All examples of salt are things that preserve meat. 20. Some examples of corn are not stuff that makes good popcorn. Exercise 8-2 ▲1. No students who wrote poor exams are students who were admitted to the program. 2. No students of mine are students who are failing. 3. No people who live in the dorms are people who can own cars.
