Therefore, the argument is not valid. 3. (20 points) Prove the resolution rule of inference (page 68 of the text), i.e., prove ( p ∨ q ) ∧ ( ¬ p ∨ r ) ⇒ ( q ∨ r ) (a) by means of truth table, p q r pvq !p !pvr (pvq)^(!pvr) qvr ((pvq)^(!pvr))->(qvr) T T T T F T T T T T T F T F F F T T T F T T F T T T T T F F T F F F F T F T T T T T T T T F T F T T T T T T F F T F T T F T T F F F F T T F F T (b) by means of derivation (hint: use implication law)....
