@Jvjk,

Happy to help. Answer C's wording is a bit confusing, but it's saying
the same thing that you think it should be saying. Here's why.

We know from the stimulus that DFW - ->M and I

The contrapositive is /M or /I - ->/DFW

Answer C says if the electorate is not moral and intelligent, then a
democracy will not function well. The first part of this answer
choice, "if the electorate is not moral and intelligent," is the
negation of the necessary condition of the original statement: a moral
and intelligent electorate are necessary for democracy to function
well. When it says "if the electorate is not moral and intelligent,"
it just means that if an electorate is not both of these things, then
democracy won't function well. This means the same thing as what you
thought it should be saying, "If an electorate is not moral or it is
not intelligent, then a democracy will not function well."

Does this answer your question? Let us know if you have any other questions!
