Students firmly believe that if a statement is true for one set of numbers, it is always true and hence have developed strong strategy for making generalizations
Students have not learnt the logical proof for the statement in the class
Students have not understood that in Mathematics ‘any’ is used to indicate
Generalizations and hence are not able to answer correctly
