If the statements above are true, which one of the following must on the basis of them also be true?

(A) It is only Quore's production structure that makes it possible fro Quore to survive the transformation of the market.

(B) Quore will not go bankrupt if it achieves a productivity increase of 20 percent over the next two years.

(C) If the market had not been transformed, Quore would have required no productivity increase in order to avoid bankruptcy.

(D) Because of the transformation of the market Quore will achieve a productivity increase of 10 percent over the next two years.

(E) If a 20 percent productivity increase is unattainable for Quore, then it must go bankrupt.

shouldnt the answer be B. I guess the vice-versa principle does not hold true.

Let X = Quore Inc increases productivity by 10%
Let Y = Quore Inc will go bankrupt

The premise says that Y will happen if X does not

B says that Y will not happen if X happens. This is not true because Y can still happen even if X happens. All we know from this problem is that Y will happen if X does not, but if X does, Y could or could not happen.
