Diagramming Practice – Swimmers

Diagram the following conditional statement and find its contrapositive: “No good swimmers stay in the shallow end of the pool.”

Answer

To diagram a “no” statement, you place the term immediately following the word “no” in the sufficient condition slot.  Then, you negate the other term and place it in the necessary slot.  So, the sufficient condition here is “good swimmers,” and the necessary condition is “NOT stay in the shallow end of the pool.”
