How do you know if a statement is true or false?
Just so, how do you determine if a statement is true or false?
If at true/false sentence contains a negative, drop the negative word and then read what remains. Without the negative, determine whether the sentence is true of false. If the sentence (without the negative) is true, then the correct answer would be "false". Watch for statements with double negatives.
One may also ask, how do you determine if a sentence is a statement? A statement sentence asserts or declares a fact, opinion or idea. It is also called an assertive sentence or a declarative sentence and is the most common type of sentence. Statement sentences almost always end in a period. Statement sentences never ask a question, give a command or make a request.
Simply so, is a statement always true?
For a statement to be always true, there must be no counterexamples for which the hypothesis is true and the conclusion is false. If there are examples for which the statement is true, but there are also counterexamples, then the statement is sometimes true.
What makes a statement false?
A false statement is a statement that is not true. A false statement need not be a lie. A lie is a statement that is known to be untrue and is used to mislead. A false statement is a statement that is untrue but not necessarily told to mislead, as a statement given by someone who does not know it is untrue.
