**Here's the Solution to this Question**

*Solution to a:*

Q(1,1)

$x+y=1+1=2$$x-y=1-1=0$

since x+y is not equal to x-y, the truth value of Q(x,y) is FALSE

*Ans: FALSE*

*Solution to b:*

Q(2,0)

$x+y=2+0=2$$x-y=2-0=2$

since x+y=x-y, the truth value of Q(x,y) is TRUE.

*Ans: TRUE*

*Solution to c:*

$\forall y Q(1,y)$

let y=1;

$x+y=1+1=2$$x-y=1-1=0$

since $\exists y$ for which x+y is not equal to x-y (e.g y=1), the truth value of Q(x,y) is FALSE.

*Ans: FALSE*

*Solution to d:*

$\exists xQ(x,2)$

$x+2=x-2$$x-x=-2-2$$0=-4$

since the above equation does not give a definite solution of x, the truth value of Q(x,y) is FALSE.

*Ans: FALSE*

*Solution to e:*

$\exists x\exists yQ(x,y)$

let x=2, y=0;

$x+y=2+0=2$$x-y=2-0=2$

since $\exists x$ and $\exists y$ such that x+y=x-y (i.e x=2, y=0), the truth value of Q(x,y) is TRUE.

*Ans: TRUE*

*Solution to f:*

$\forall x \exists y Q(x,y)$

let x=1,y=1;

$x+y=1+1=2$$x-y=1-1=0$

since x+y is not equal x-y when x=1 and y=1, the truth value of Q(x,y) is FALSE

*Ans: FALSE*

*Solution to g:*

$\exists y \forall xQ(x,y)$

when y=0;

$x+0=x-0$$x=x$

since x+y=x-y for all x when y=0, the truth value of Q(x,y) is TRUE

*Ans: TRUE*

*Solution to h:*

$\forall y \exists x Q(x,y)$

let y=1;

$x+1=x-1$$x-x=-1-1$$0=-2$

since the above equation does not give a definite solution of x, the truth value of Q(x,y) is FALSE.

*Ans: FALSE*

*Solution to i:*

$\forall x\forall yQ(x,y)$

let x=1, y=1;

$x+y=1+1=2$$x-y=1-1=0$

since x+y is not equal to x-y, the truth value of Q(x,y) is FALSE

*Ans: FALSE*
