IF X then Y -- also implies --> If NOT Y then NOT X

working backwards,

If NOT D, then NOT C,
IF NOT C then NOT B, and finally
If NOT B, then NOT A

so NOT D leads to NOT A

think logically.

from the statements you get:

A -> D by transitive property

so if we know D did not happen from choice C, then A could not have happened because A causes D so Ans C: If not D, then Not A

How about B? It should be correct as well, if I work on the same logic.
Could you please explian the flaw in B?

Thank you.

Thank you.

B says, If NOT B then NOT C - which is not correct

We have "If B then C" which is NOT the same as "IF NOT B then NOT C"
