1. I'll exercise if I eat too much.

can be rephrased as:

IF "I eat too much" THEN "I'll exercise"
≡ IF p THEN q.

Can you continue?

3. The truth table is a standard table for the conditional that you can find from any textbook or notes.

For p->q, it is false ONLY when p is true and q is false, the 3 other cases are all true.
