# Context Free Grammar Exercise

I'm studying Context free Grammar and I have a question to a specific Exercise:

Why is i. True? How is this possible?

• By the way, it is CS.SE policy to post text as text, not as an image. Here, you only needed the grammar plus the (i) item. – chi Jun 23 '18 at 18:00

For every nonterminal $A$ it always holds that $A \Rightarrow^* A$. This is because $\Rightarrow^*$ is the reflexive transitive closure of $\Rightarrow$. In words, $A \Rightarrow^* \alpha$ is $\alpha$ can be obtained from $A$ by applying zero or more productions.
The similar notation $\Rightarrow^+$ is the transitive closure of $\Rightarrow$, and corresponds to one or more productions. In your grammar, it isn't the case that $T \Rightarrow^+ T$.
