Given that p and q are contradictories, p and r are contraries, p and s are subcontraries, and p and t are subalterns, what are the relations subsisting between q, r, s, and tf If p and q are contraries, q and r are contradictories, and r and s are contraries, what are p and s7 GROUP C 1. by determining whether they are or transitive. Classify the following relations reflexive, symmetrical, "is "is higher than" the cousin of" "is parallel to" "works for" "has a greater velocity than" the king of" "is "Some —— is a part of" "is a factor of" (in mathematics) "is "belongs underneath" "All—is— "loves" "No—is— "is an analogue of" "Some — is not — Give a relation which is reflexive, symmetrical, and transitive; one (other than "implies") which is reflexive and transitive, but not symmetrical; one which is neither reflexive, symmetrical, nor transitive; one which is only symmetrical; one which is only reflexive; one which is only transitive; one which is reflexive and symmetrical, but not transitive.
