i agree with the reasoning given by sudeep,

if x then y, if not y then not x,

for ex: if 70, means you crossed 60, if not 60, then you also didn't cross 70....i hope this relates to what sudeep is trying to say...?

if 70, means you crossed 60, if not 60, then you also didn't cross 70
if 70, means you crossed 60, if not crossed 60, then it's not 70.

But in general it is considered in terms of events.

If x event happen, then Y happens.

So if there is no event Y, then it is clearly understood that X event didn't happen.
This is because, Y is like a child event of X, and Y will always be there with X.

But ==> If Y happened, it doesn't imply that X has happened. Because it is nowhere mentioned that Y happens only when X happens.
