both are correct
the problem with 1 is the human brain is not particularity good with
to do not (some function) you first of all have to work out some function
& then invert it, a computer does this without difficulty the human brain
gets confused which is why I personally consider ii is more readable
(YMMV especially if you are working with Boolean maths regularly) this
example is relatively simple as things get more complex they become more
error prone error.
*as an example you brain cannot correctly process the following.
Not (think of your left toe)
