1. Define fuzzification. Ans: Fuzzification is process of finding the membership degree A(x') to which input value x' for a fuzzyvariable x defined on an universe U belongs to a fuzzy set A defined on the same universe. 2. Define defuzzification. Ans: Defuzzification is the process of calculating a single output numerical value for a fuzzy output variable on thebasis of an inferred membership function for this variable. 3. What is meant ! non"interacti#e fuzz! sets$ Ans: on!interactive fuzzy sets can be thought of analogous to independent events in probability theory. "hich means the occurrence of one event is not dependent on the occurrence of others. 4. Define con#e% fuzz! set. Ans:A fuzzy set A of # is called convex if $A%a is a convex subset of # belongs to a & $'()%. &. Differentiate classical set & fuzz! set. Ans: A classical set is defined by *crisp+ boundaries, i.e. there is no uncertainty in the prescription or location of the boundaries of the set. A fuzzy set( on the other hand( is prescribed by vague or ambiguous properties, hence its boundaries are ambiguously specified '. Write the truth ta le for modus tollens.

(. Define com)ound fuzz! )ro)osition.

Ans: A fuzzy proposition can be an atomic or compound sentence. For example


"Temperature is hot" is an atomic fuzzy proposition. "Temperature is hot and humidity is low" is a compound fuzzy proposition. /ompound fuzzy relations are expressed with fuzzy connectives such as and( or and complement.

*. +%)lain e%tension )rinci)le. Ans: A useful principle( called the extension principle( defines how any single real value( or function( or set(can be represented by a corresponding fuzzy membership function( that is( how it can be fuzzified. 0f wehave a function f1 # 2 3 between two crisp sets # and 3( and we 4now the membership function A of a subset A 5 #( we can obtain the fuzzy representation of f(A) in 3 through the following formula1 f(A)(f(x)) 6 A(x) 1,. -i#e the formula for fuzz! inner )roduct and outer )roduct of a& .
