    Wow that seems imprecise.. That depends on how you define your properties. For instance, that could be
    1) if P(x) means " x is james" and Q(x) means " x wears a grey scarf", it would be:

    \forall x P(x) \Rightarrow Q(x)

    2) If P(x) means " x is james", Q(x,y) means " x wears y", S(x) means " x is a scarf" and G(x) means " x is grey", then it would be

    \forall x P(x) \Rightarrow \exists y ( S(y) \wedge  G(y) \wedge Q(x,y) )
