Question: Define counter example. give an example

Posted by: Shrigesh on 29.10.2020

Counterexamples are simply the such examples for a given statement ,which meets it's requirement or all conditions to obtain a certain result, yet doesnot produce the same result, thus it contradicts its conclusion but at the same time satisfying it's all necessary conditions . The best example of it is Money makes a man happy And it's counterexample is : Ram remains sad despite of rich lifestyle So , the above example , fulfills the condition of being having lot of money by Ram but it contradicts it's result of being happy , as Ram is sad despite of all money ,. May be Ram has recently lost some dear or near one which made him sad about it

Counter example is simply the converse example of the statement.

For Example:

Every number ending with 0,2,4,6,8 are even numbers.

Counter Example: Every number which is not ending with 0,2,4,6,8 are not even numbers.

An example that disproves a statement (shows that it is false). Example: the statement "all dogs are hairy" can be proved false by finding just one hairless dog (the counterexample).

If you give an example which disproves the statement (the opposite person says) is called COUNTER.

EXAMPLE: All mathematics students are good at Physics but if you give anyone's example who is the "topper" of mathematics but not good at physics.
