Using the symbolization key given, symbolize each sentence in QL.

Universal Discourse: animals

Dx: x is a puppy

Hx: x is lost

Tx: is a Terrier

Fxy: x can run faster than y

r: Tim

1.No puppy can run faster than Tim.

2. No animal is faster than itself

3. Some puppies are Terriers and some are not.

4. There is a puppy who is not a Terrier but is faster than any Terrier

5. For every puppy, there is some animal that is faster.

Here is my attempt:I'm uncertain about question 1 and 4 and I need more clarification on those.

1. ~∀x(Dx --> Frx)

2. ~∃xFxx

3. ∃x[(Dx & Tx) & (Dx & ~Tx)]

4. ∃x[(Dx & ~Tx) & ∀yFxy]

5. x(Dx--> ∃yFxy)
