Modus Tollens (Denying the consequent)

The modus tollens is one type of deductive inference.

If Rex is a dog, Rex has four legs.

Rex has not four legs.

----------------------------------------------

Rex is not a dog

p ————> q (If p, then q)

Not q (given: not q)

-------------------------------------------

Not p(Inference: not p)

Not q

Not p

Please note that denying the antecedent is logically unsound: Even if Rex is not a dog, he can well have four legs.
