Read chapter 13 of A Concise introduction to logic.

Homework 7: do problem 1 of chapter 13 of the book.

HINT: I was asked about phrases like "... is a male poriferan." You could treat that as one predicte, but consider: something can be male and not a poriferan (well, in Spongebob's world, anyway); and something can be a poriferan and not male; so why not treat them as two predicates? That is, would you agree that "x is a male poriferan" is equivalent to "x is male and x is poriferan"?
