Final Answer :
Explanation :
A categorical proposition is a statement that makes a claim about the relationship between two categories. Option E, "Many world religions use prayer beads," fits this definition as it makes a claim about the category of world religions and their use of prayer beads. The other options are not categorical propositions as they either do not make a claim about a relationship between categories (A and D) or are commands rather than declarative statements (B and C).
