+Assignment 1
+============
+
+Problems
+--------
+
+### Problem 1
+
+"The man saw the woman with his telescope."
+
+"The man used a telescope to see the woman."
+
+"The man saw the woman with her telescope."
+
+### Problem 2
+
+1. Sisters reunite in Safeway checkout after ten years apart.
+2. Large hole appears in High Street.  City authorities are investigating.
+3. Mayor says bus passengers should wear seat belts.
+
+### Problem 3
+
+"There are no head injuries which are too trivial to ignore."
+
+The second meaning is hard to nail down.  It's maybe something like "(no head
+injury) is too trivial to ignore", or "an uninjured head is so trivial that we
+can't possibly ignore it".
+
+### Problem 4
+
+The obvious meaning is that when there is a fire, you should not use the
+elevator.
+
+The other meaning is that you should *never* use the elevator in case there
+might be a fire.
+
+"Do not use the elevator when there is a fire."
+
+### Problem 5
+
+It could be true.  If the sentence implies "this page was intentionally left
+blank by the author, but we the editors have added this notice" then it's fine.
+But if it just means "this page intentionally has no ink" then it's false.
+
+The purpose could be something like:
+
+1. Our printing process means we have a few extra pages at this point and no
+   content for them.
+2. We don't want you to think we accidentally left something out that you might
+   need.
+3. So we'll add this notice to make it clear that you're not missing anything.
+
+"No content on this page" or something similar would be a bit less grating than
+the current wording.
+
+### Problem 6
+
+### Problem 7
+
+The temperature is a measurement system -- it's an abstract thing that can't
+feel hot or cold.
+
+### Problem 8
+
+By counterexample:
+
+    N = (+ (* 2 3 5 7 11 13)
+           1)
+    N = 30031
+
+    30031 = (* 509 59)
+    30031 is not prime
+
