Let S(x) be the predicate "x is a student" F(x) be "x is a faculty member" And A(x,y) the predicate "x has asked y a question" where the domain consists of all people associated with your school. Use quantifier to express each of these statements.

e) There is a faculty member who has never been asked a question by a student.

I want to ask few questions:-

As "a" is denoted by "there exists" So why "for all" is used in kenneth rosen answer, when it is clearly said that never been asked a question by a student not any student.

What is wrong in my answer and how kenneth rosen answer is correct. Please tellhttps://csedoubts.gateoverflow.in/?qa=blob&qa_blobid=16705169279570597075

I am now clear with this doubt. Actually english is ambiguous so correct interpretation will lead to correct answer.

For this statement the correct interpretation would be-

There is a faculty member to whom none of the student have ever asked a question. Due to this kenneth rosen answer is correct.
