A conjecture should be testable. You test it and if it fails the test, it is a false conjecture.

It's a counterexample.

A mouse is a mammal, but it us not a monkey.

Because that is what a conjecture is! It is a proposition that has to be checked out to see f it isalways true, false or indeterminate,sometimes true, false or indeterminate,never true, false or indeterminate.Once its nature has been decided then it is no longer a conjecture.

Counter-example

a conjecture is disproved if it is shown to be false. this can be done by providing a single concrete example (e.g. with actual numbers, functions, etc) that shows the conjecture's premise does not necessarily lead to its conclusion. alternatively, a conjecture could be shown to be false (i.e. disproved) by demonstrating that IF it were true then a logical consequence would be a clearly wrong statement (e.g. 2 + 2 =5)

Counter example

A therefore B A is true Therefore B is true Logically..... A is true A is false Therefore B is false

a conjecture

A conjecture is a statement that is believed to be true, but has yet to be proven. Conjectures can often be disproven by a counter example and are then referred to as false conjectures.

well.......Its like testing a conjecture and finding a statement true or false because u have to test it!!! to see if its true or false and its different,true is like something u can prove and false is untrue and u cant prove it. :D i know i don't make sense but that's how i explained it on my homeworklol
