##### Solution :-

(i) p : For every positive real number x, the number (x – 1) is also positive.

The negation of the statement:

p: For every positive real number x, the number (x – 1) is also positive.

is ~p: There exists a positive real number x, such that the number (x – 1) is not positive.

(ii) q: For every real number x, either x > 1 or x < 1.

The negation of the statement:

q: For every real number x, either x > 1 or x < 1.

is ~q: There exists a real number such that neither x>1 or x<1.

(iii) r: There exists a number x such that 0 < x < 1.

The negation of the statement:

r: There exists a number x such that 0 < x < 1.

is ~r: For every real number x, either x ≤ 0 or x ≥ 1.
