Diagraming S & N

Hi, Why didn't @Mehran diagram the statement that Mesopotamian cities (Mc) never had marketplaces as Mc -> /MP, meaning diagram it as a No Statement. Whereas Mehran diagrammed the statement that Greek cities all had marketplaces as an All Statement.

@Dalaal, happy to help.

You are correct - we could have diagrammed the statement as: MC -> No MP. However, remember that we only know this in the context of the fourth century.

This is valid and would allow us to come to the same conclusion in answer choice (E), that MC -> No MP -> No MS.

Though this is a helpful diagram, it is not completely necessary to solve the question, which is why it was not addressed in the video. As you practice more of these problems, what you do and do not have to diagram to solve the question as efficiently as possible should become clearer.

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