# Identify the Quantifiers in the following statements.(i) There exists a triangle which is not equilateral.(ii) For all real numbers x and y, xy = yx.(iii) There exists a real number which is not a rational number.(iv) For every natural number x, x + 1 is also a natural number.(v) For all real numbers x with x > 3, x2 is greater than 9.(vi) There exists a triangle which is not an isosceles triangle(vii) For all negative integers x, x3 is also a negative integers.(viii) There exists a statement in above statements which is not true.(ix) There exists a even prime number other than 2.(x) There exists a real number x such that x2 + 1 = 0.

(i) Quantifiers means a phrase like ‘there exist’,’for all’ and ‘for every’ etc. and these are used to make the prepositional statement.

In the given statement “There exists a triangle which is not equilateral”

Quantifier is “There exist”

Hence, There exist is quantifier.

(ii) Quantifiers means a phrase like ‘there exist’,’for all’ and ‘for every’ etc. and these are used to make the prepositional statement.

In the given statement “For all real numbers x and y, xy = yx.”

Quantifier is “For all”

Hence, ‘For all’ is quantifier.

(iii) Quantifiers means a phrase like ‘there exist’,’for all’ and ‘for every’ etc. and these are used to make the prepositional statement.

In the given statement “There exists a real number which is not a rational number.”

Quantifier is “There exist”

Hence, ‘There exist’ is quantifier.

(iv) Quantifiers means a phrase like ‘there exist’,’for all’ and ‘for every’ etc. and these are used to make the prepositional statement.

In the given statement “For every natural number x, x + 1 is also a natural number.”

Quantifier is “For every”

Hence, ‘For every’ is quantifier.

(v) Quantifiers means a phrase like ‘there exist’,’for all’ and ‘for every’ etc. and these are used to make the prepositional statement.

In the given statement “For all real numbers x with x > 3, x2 is greater than 9.”

Quantifier is “For all”

Hence, ‘For all’ is quantifier.

(vi) Quantifiers means a phrase like ‘there exist’,’for all’ and ‘for every’ etc. and these are used to make the prepositional statement.

In the given statement “There exists a triangle which is not an isosceles triangle.”

Quantifier is “There exist”

Hence, ‘There exist’ is quantifier.

(vii) Quantifiers means a phrase like ‘there exist’,’for all’ and ‘for every’ etc. and these are used to make the prepositional statement.

In the given statement “For all negative integers x, x3 is also a negative integers.”

Quantifier is “For all”

Hence, ‘For all’ is quantifier.

(viii) Quantifiers means a phrase like ‘there exist’,’for all’ and ‘for every’ etc. and these are used to make the prepositional statement.

In the given statement “There exists a statement in above statements which is not true.”

Quantifier is “There exist”

Hence, ‘There exist’ is quantifier.

(ix) Quantifiers means a phrase like ‘there exist’,’for all’ and ‘for every’ etc. and these are used to make the prepositional statement.

In the given statement “There exists a even prime number other than 2.”

Quantifier is “There exist”

Hence, ‘There exist’ is quantifier.

(x) Quantifiers means a phrase like ‘there exist’,’for all’ and ‘for every’ etc. and these are used to make the prepositional statement.

In the given statement “There exists a real number x such that x2 + 1 = 0.”

Quantifier is “There exist”

Hence, ‘There exist’ is quantifier.
