Given that =>
m @ p = n
n @ r = m
n @ q = q
p @ q = p
q @ p = r

[(m @ p) @ q ] @ p = [(n) @ q] @ p
q @ p
= r

m @ p = n
n @ r = m
n @ q = q
p @ q = p
q @ p = r

If the relations shown hold for the operation @ and the numbers m, n, p, q and r, then [(m @ p) @ q] @ p =

A. m
B. n
C. p
D. q
E. r

E
Solution:

[(m @ p) @ q] @ p

= [n @ q] @ p

= q @ p

= r
