Please ignore the above post. I figured it out:Rule 2: J---->K

The contrapositive to Rule 2: ~k---->~J

When we combine Answer-choice D (J---->~N) or its contrapositive (N---->~J) combines with Rule 1 we end up with with the rule for which we substituted, i.e. Rule 2:

J---->~N combines with Rule 1 ~N---->K to effect J---->K, the contrapositive of which is ~K---->~J which is the contrapositive to Rule 2.

Answer-choice C is irrelevant in so far as tying J and K in accordance to Rule 2 while simultaneously substituting for it.

It helps to think through these more complex questions by reasoning our thoughts via posting!

Thank you

Good Job Mazen,I agree that the act of writing out your reasoning can help you to see what you may have missed or misinterpreted the first time
