## What are the basic inference rules utilized over predicate logic domain?

As propositional logic we also have inference rules in first-order logic, so following are some basic inference rules in FOL:

- Universal Generalization.
- Universal Instantiation.
- Existential Instantiation.
- Existential introduction.

## How do you write a sentence with a predicate logic?

- • More than one quantifier may be necessary to capture the meaning of a statement in the predicate logic.
- Example: • There is a person who loves everybody.
- • Translation: – Assume:
- • Variables x and y denote people. • A predicate L(x,y) denotes: “x loves y”
- • Then we can write in the predicate logic: ∃ x ∀y L(x,y)

## What is a predicate in predicate logic?

Predicates. A predicate is a boolean function whose value may be true or false, depending on the arguments to the predicate. Predicates are a generalization of propositional variables. A propositional variable is a predicate with no arguments.

## What are the different rules of inference?

Table of Rules of Inference

Rule of Inference | Name |
---|---|

P∨Q¬P∴Q | Disjunctive Syllogism |

P→QQ→R∴P→R | Hypothetical Syllogism |

(P→Q)∧(R→S)P∨R∴Q∨S | Constructive Dilemma |

(P→Q)∧(R→S)¬Q∨¬S∴¬P∨¬R | Destructive Dilemma |

## What are the limitations of predicate logic?

One key limitation is that it applies only to atomic propositions. There is no way to talk about properties that apply to categories of objects, or about relationships between those properties. That’s what predicate logic is for.

## What are the quantifiers used in predicate logic?

There are two types of quantifier in predicate logic − Universal Quantifier and Existential Quantifier.
