3, Disjuctions require an either /or type of statement? I only see that in ii.

2. Conjunctions are unions, if a is true, and B is true, then C is true. Otherwise, C is false.
Statements i,iii are conjunctions, as I see them.

By the way, have you ever heard in English the term ' coordinated conjunction?' In logic, it is the disjunction. OR is the operative word.

In English, the word "and" is the operative word for the logical conjunction.
