##### Solution :-

(i) The negation of the first statement is ‘the number x is a rational number’. This is because if the number is not an irrational number, then it is a rational number. This is same as the second statement

(ii) The negation of the first statement is ‘the number x is not a rational number’. This means that the number is an irrational number which is same as the second statement. Therefore, the given statements are negations of each other.
