re(2): Boolean | Comment 7 of 8 |
(In reply to re: Boolean by Dej Mar)

Under the supposition that 1 is true and the rest false:

(A) "either 1 or 4 is true" is true

(B) "2 is false" is true

Stating that "if and only if (B) then (A)" is then true, as both are true. But the supposition was that this statement (3) is false. The supposition is contradicted.
