# Find the component statements of the following compound statements and check whether they are true or false.

(i) Number 3 is prime, or it is odd

(ii) All integers are positive or negative

(iii) 100 is divisible by 3, 11 and 5

**Solution:**

The components of a statement are its parts and are obtained by breaking it at the conjunctions.

**(i)** The component statements are as follows.

p: Number 3 is prime.

q: Number 3 is odd.

Both the statements are true.

**(ii)** The component statements are as follows.

p: All integers are positive.

q: All integers are negative.

Both the statements are false.

**(iii)** The component statements are as follows.

p: 100 is divisible by 3.

q: 100 is divisible by 11.

r: 100 is divisible by 5.

Here the statements p and q are false and statement r is true
