1. Check the validity of the following argument. If the band could not play rock music
or the refreshments were not delivered on time, then the New years party would
have been cancelled and Alice would have been angry. If the party were cancelled,
then refunds would have to be made. No refunds were made.

5. Check whether the hypothesis It is not sunny this afternoon and it is colder than
yesterday, we will go swimming only if it is sunny , If we do not go swimming
then we will take a canoe trip and If we take a canoe trip, then we will be home
by sunset lead to the conclusion we will be home by sunset.
