Where can i find problems in relations and equivalence relations?



Hi,
I am looking for problems with answers regarding relations and
equivalence Relations.
for example a good question can be:
"Is there a relation which is reflexive symetric and antisymmetric"
Btw my strategy to solve such problems is to write the definition
and using operation on sets and de morgan law to simplify it..is this a
good method?
Thanks in advance.

Relations or binary relations? For the later, read about 
order theory and they'll pop up all over the place.

Good question, got any others? Anyway yes, give an example. 
If a relation is symmetric and antisymmetric, show it's reflexive.
Antisymmetric is a <= b, b <= a > a = b
tho some call that asymmetric, using the former for
not(a <= b, b <= a).

DeMorgan laws are good to know and use. In addition, you'll likely 
develop other techniques.

And writing out PRECISE definitions is always a good idea!
