By inspection, it is easy to see that only x1 (t) is odd. Therefore this condition is true for x1 (t) and false for x2 (t) and x3 (t). Note that x3 (t) can not be described as either odd or even, which means that it has both even and odd components, and hence its Fourier transform would have b oth real and imaginary parts. (2) ∞m{X (j� )} = 0 S...
