Homework Statement


Is the following a statement: "Next year interest rates will rise"


Homework Equations


Sort of obvious, but a statement is defined as something which is true or false.


The Attempt at a Solution


I'm guessing that it is a statement, even if it isn't known whether it is true or false?
Thanks for any help.

Well, it's either true or false.

So yes, it is a statement.

Just because we don't know whether or not it is true or false, doesn't change the fact it is one of them.
