    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.

    Actually, this is Logic. Euler invented diagrams that demonstrated "logic" with what we now call Venn Diagrams. It is not really Geometry, or English. It is logic.

    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.
