Truth tables 4 (v2)
Create a truth table for a logical expression of the form $((a \operatorname{op1} b) \operatorname{op2}(c \operatorname{op3} d))\operatorname{op4}e $ where each of $a, \;b,\;c,\;d,\;e$ can be one the Boolean variables $p,\;q,\;r,\;\neg p,\;\neg q,\;\neg r$ and each of $\operatorname{op1},\;\operatorname{op2},\;\operatorname{op3},\;\operatorname{op4}$ one of $\lor,\;\land,\;\to$.
For example: $((q \lor \neg r) \to (p \land \neg q)) \land \neg r$
