"Always" rule

Regarding example 1, is it correct to conclude that "Always" introduces a necessary condition?

Hi @Madelynn22,

Thanks for the question! I can’t see the example 1 to which you refer for some reason, but yes, “always” introduces a necessary condition. Consider, for example, the statement that swans are always white. We can rephrase this in terms of “all,” if that’s helpful, since if swans are always white, that means that all swans are white. This means that if it’s a swan, it’s white, or to diagram it out:

swan —> White

Hope this helps! Feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.
