    the answer is d D. If a polygon is not convex, then it is not regular.

    really? i thought that if the statement is If P then Q converse is If Q then P contrapositive is if not Q then not P inverse is if not P then not Q

    so contrapositive is the same as the statement and the inverse is the same as the converse

    I think they are looking for the contrapositive. If that is the case then it is D

    it is d because it is the inverse for example like the opistite

    Hrmm, one second. Maybe there is an inverse statement. Ok inverse is contrapositive of the converse.

    yes "inversion" usually means contrapositive of converse.

    you have a statement that says if P then Q. i use a simple example. if the figure is a square, then it is a rectangle

    the "contrapositive" of the statement is an equivalent statement of the form if not Q then not P in this example if the figure is not a rectangle, then it is not a square

    a moments thought will convince you that a statement is equivalent to its contrapostive

    then there is the "converse" of the statement. that is if Q then P in my example if the figure is a rectangle, then it is a square

    clearly that is not the same as the original statement. in fact in this example the original statement is true and the converse is false

    afridi the inverse is the contrapositive of the converse. If P -> Q the the inverse is not P -> not Q so its A

    What is contrapositive? and What is converse?

    and finally there is the "inverse" which as alchemista said is the contrapositive of the converse. it is if not P then not Q. in my example if the figure is not a square, then it is not a rectangle. this is equivalent to the converse, and again in this case it is false.
