I. Quantity of Judgments: Universal: All GTOs are cars (“All As are B”) Particular: Some cars are GTOs (“Some As are B”) Singular: This car is a GTO (“A is B”)

I.I.Of OfQuantity: Quantity : Unity Plurality Totality

II. Quality: Affirmative: The GTO is blue (“A is B”/“All As are B”) Negative: The GTO is not blue (“A is not B”/“No As are B”) Infinite: The GTO is non-blue (“A is non-B”/“All As are non-B’s”)

II. Of Quality: Reality Negation Limitation

III. Relation: Categorical: The car is a GTO (“A is B”) Hypothetical: If the jack-stands fail, then the GTO will fall to the ground (“If A then B”) Disjunctive: Either the GTO is a convertible or the GTO is a hardtop (“Either it is A or B”)

III. Of Relation: Of Inherence and Subsistence (substantia et accidens ) Of Causality and Dependence (cause and effect ) Of Community (reciprocity between agent and patient)

IV. Modality: Problematic: Tomorrow, the GTO might run a 10-second quarter mile (“A may/might/could be B”) Assertoric: Today, the GTO is running a 10-second quarter mile (“A is B”) Apodictic: To run the quarter mile the GTO must have fuel (“A must be B”)

IV. *Of Modality: Possibility—Impossibility Existence—Non-existence Necessity—Contingency
