diagramming question

I answered this question correctly, then watched the explanation video, and the diagram there was different then the one I set up. She treated the If portion of the first sentence of the passage as an umbrella term, so to speak, but that's not what I did. This is what I did: CMCFU + IG ----> NCI Is this correct also? This way seems to yield an additional inferences that from my perspective wouldn't be obvious with the other diagram.

Hi @Kweb1016,

Thanks for the question! Yes, that is a correct diagram! We can diagram the statement

CMCFU —> (~NCI —> ~IG)

and take a contrapositive to get

CMCFU —> IG —> NCI

which is equivalent to

CMCFU & IG —> NCI

Very good job diagramming!

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