Statement i says that one of the following statements is true, but not both.

1. If there is a king in the hand, then there is an ace.
2. If there isn't a king in the hand, then there is an ace.

Since there is a king in the hand, 2 must be true. Therefore, 1 must be false. Since 1 is false, there is no ace in the hand.

Conclusion:There is no ace in the hand.
