General Section Issues

  • da, de, di are singular variables when bound by singular quantifier, i.e. they take values one at a time. The quantifier indicates the number of values it can take such that with each of those values the quantified bridi is true. A variable bound by a plural quantifier could take more than one value at a time to satisfy a predicate.
