"Always" "But" "never"

Can someone please explain the conditions and the rules of those three words. they have not been discussed before the example. From my understanding, Always introduces a necessary condition. Never is another way of saying not or no. "But" is another way of saying and. The question wording kinda of confused me. would like some help on this for the purpose of future questions with similar wording. Thanks

@T97 and @charlierusso04,

Happy to help.

"Always" generally introduces a necessary condition, but also note
that it can be used in lots of different ways, so it's not an absolute
guarantee that it's introducing a necessary condition (it depends on
what other logical indicators are present within the phrase or
sentence you're looking at).

"But" usually indicates a shift in tone or the introduction of either
a subsidiary conclusion or conclusion.

"Never" is, as you mentioned, another way of saying "no" or "not."
Statements with "never" often mean that when diagramming, you need to
negate the necessary condition.

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any other questions!
