Consider two subsets A,B Ω and suppose x 1 ,x 2 A , x 2 B , but x 1 / B . For each of the following statements, determine whether it is true, possibly true (not enough information is available to decide), or false: (a) A B (b) B A (c) A = B (d) A 6 = B (e) ∅ ⊂ A (f) A = Ω (g) B B 2. Draw Venn diagrams and find a simple expression for the following events: (a) ( E F ) ( E F c ) (b) ( E F ) ( E c F ) ( E F c ) (c) ( E F ) ( F G ) 3. Let E , F and G be three events. Find expressions for the following events: (a) only F occurs (b) both E and F but not G occur (c) at least one event occurs (d) none occurs (e) at most two occur 4. Let A,B,C be three subsets of Ω about which it is known that A = B C and also A = B C . For each of the following, state whether it is true, possibly true, or false:
