 Question 1
Which of the following predicate calculus statements is/are valid?
 A $(\forall (x)) P(x) \vee (\forall(x))Q(x) \implies (\forall (x)) (P(x) \vee Q(x))$ B $(\exists (x)) P(x) \wedge (\exists (x))Q(x) \implies (\exists (x)) (P(x) \wedge Q(x))$ C $(\forall (x)) (P(x) \vee Q(x)) \implies (\forall (x)) P(x) \vee (\forall (x)) Q(x)$ D $(\exists (x)) (P(x) \vee Q(x)) \implies \sim (\forall (x)) P(x) \vee (\exists (x)) Q(x)$

 Question 5
PCHL is an instruction in 8085 which transfers the contents of the register pair HL to PC. This is not a very commonly used instruction as it changes the flow of control in rather 'unstructured' fashion. This instruction can be useful in implementing.
 A if ... then ... else ... construct B while .. construct C case .. construct D call ... construct
