The statement "If x is divisible by 8, then it is divisible by 6" is false if x equals

$\begin {array} {1 1} (A)\;6 & \quad (B)\;14 \\ (C)\;32 & \quad (D)\;48 \end {array}$


1 Answer

Ans : (C)
A sentence in "If....then..." form is called an implication.
The only time when an implication is false is when the
"If" part of the sentence is true and the "then" part of the sentence is false.
The number 32 makes the first part of the statement true and
the second part of the statement false.
