Clarification

I got thrown off with the language of the second S & N statement in the question stem. Doesn't provided that mean necessary? You will appreciate something provided that you have done something else? I don't think I have come across this language in a question before this one.

Hi Avif, thanks for the question.

Provided that is a sufficient condition, despite its confusing phrasing! Let's look at the example above.

Having done something else guarantees your appreciation for something. That is why it is sufficient.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks. I will be aware of it the next time I come across it.
