Diagramming Practice – Milkshakes

Diagram the following conditional statement and find its contrapositive: “Chocolate is the only good flavor for a milkshake.”

Answer

The diagramming keyword here is “the only.”  “The only” is a bit tricky to diagram.  “Only” by itself indicates a necessary condition.  However, “the only” indicates a sufficient condition.  Thus, “good flavor for a milkshake” is sufficient.  That means “chocolate” is necessary.
