1 Answer

Ans : (D)
A- This is called exclusive ‘or’ because it is not possible for sum of 2
natural numbers to be both even and odd.
B- This is called exclusive ‘or’ because a student cannot take both
arts and science combination at a time.
C- This is called exclusive ‘or’ because only one action takes place at time.
D- This is inclusive ‘or’ since $ \sqrt 7$ is irrational.
