I've been trying to solve these for a while now, if anyone

Customer Question

I've been trying to solve these for a while now, if anyone can figure them out it would be much appreciated.
1. Construct a formal proof of validity for the following arguments.
2. Attend carefully to instructions attached to specific arguments.
3. If a specific argument’s conclusion presents a “=” as its main connective, employ the parallel method of proof, recalling that alteration of the conclusion is restricted to the Rule of Replacement, which now includes Absorption (Abs.).
For example, given the argument in our text, Exercise E-18 on page 417:
J v (~J • K)
J > L
//therefore (L • J) = J
The conclusion should be designated as //therefore C1 (L • J) = J when beginning the proof. At least one further step must be taken (at C2) to comply with the instructions.
1. Without Modus Ponens
M > W
//therefore W
2. Without Exportation
A > (D > K)
//therefore (A • D) > K
3. No Rule Exceptions
T = (L > K)
~ N • K
//therefore T
4. No Rule Exceptions
M = W
//therefore M = (M • W)
5. All political projects offer evidence to the effect that if the people prosper then the people do not prosper. The people do not prosper.
Key: P = The people prosper.

Thanks for trying, but it's incorrect.
I added some class notes that might help.

First 5 arguments should be solved by following using 19 rules of inference and replacement to clarify the conclusion.
Expert:  Donna Kakonge replied 1 day ago.

Dear Ahmed,

Thank you for giving me further instructions. This is definitely helpful. I did not have that information before. When is your deadline? I certainly hope that I can have enough time to work through your questions in order to get them correct, particularly since the answers are based on logic. Answers based on logic take critical thinking and time to work through. I do not require an inordinate amount of time, however I sincerely ***** ***** you do not expect me to give you the answers any time prior to Tuesday. By Tuesday I could do it. Would that be OK? I do have other assignments I am working on as well.

Kindest regards ***** ***** look forward to hearing a positive response from you soon,

Dear Ahmed,

Thank you for letting me know. I'm glad you got your answers. I will note not to work on this for you.

Thanks and congratulations,
