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.
