  1. Mr Beattie I think It is a no because Jack is married and George is not so is a married person (Jack) looking at an unmarried person (George) no because jack is looking at anne

  2. The answer is yes, because we know JACK is married and GEORGE is not married.

    ANNE is one or the other, Let’s say she’s unmarried m= married um=unmarried

    Then JACK(m) is looking at ANNE(um) j(m)–> a(um)–>g(um)

    If she’s married then it is still true because Anne(m) is looking at GEORGE(um)

    j(m)–> a(m)–>g(um)

  3. It’s C: Cannot be determined because Jack (married) is staring at Anne (undetermined) and George being unmarried is just extra information.
