IMO E

If you have not landed in Republic than you cannot land in Ethiopia and if you have not landed in Ethiopia then you cannot land in Ulan Batur.

Hello Experts,

This looks like a 'Necessary' and 'sufficient' condition question to be as explained in Power score CR. Am I correct in my understanding?

if yes, can someone please help me understand the answer to this by using Diagramming?

Thanking you in Advance!

yenngoc2409 From the stimulus, we know two things: 1) If a passenger landed in Ulan Batur, then they landed in Ethiopia and 2) If a passenger landed in Ethiopia, then they landed in Republic. B incorrectly assumes that just because a passenger did not land in Ethiopia, it is impossible for him/her or "must not have" landed in the Republic. However, it's possible that he/she landed in the Republic without having gone to Ethiopia at all. Maybe we went to the North Pole first... Therefore, this statement is a possibility but not a definitive truth. (According to the Powerscore method, this would be considered a "mistaken negation".)

The negation concept is probably easier to understand outside of this context...because this whole country/region thing is confusing! For example, let's say that the original statement was: If you eat 5 pies, then you'll be sent to the hospital. If we negate this (the way B does with the original post), it'd say: If you did not eat 5 pies, then you must not have been sent to the hospital. Logically speaking, this looks "in line" with the original statement but is negated and makes 0 sense. Just because I didn't eat 5 pies, doesn't mean I didn't go to the hospital. What about getting sick? Visiting a friend?
