Read the following statements.

Statement 1: “If she is stuck in traffic, then she is late.”
Statement 2: “If she is late, then she is stuck in traffic.”
Statement 3: “If she is not late, then she is not stuck in traffic.”

Karen writes, “Statement 2 is the converse of statement 3 and contrapositive of statement 1.”
Laura writes, “Statement 2 is the converse of statement 1 and inverse of statement 3.”

Who is correct?


  1. *for this question*
    only laura is correct
    and for anyone who is here for the kim and sue question, both sue and kim are incorrect.


  2. Based on the given statements, the person who is correct about the converse, inverse, and contrapositive statements is Laura.

    What are inverse and converse statements?

    Assuming that you have an original statement of “If C then B,” the inverse of that statement would be “If not C then not B.”
    The converse of the original statement would be, “If B then C.”
    This shows that Lauren is correct in saying that “Statement 2 is the converse of statement 1″ because it says “If B(late) then C(traffic).
    And that Statement 2 is the inverse of statement 3 because it says that “If not C (late) then not B (traffic).
