Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Assuming that Joshua had broke the vase, that would make Nathan's statement FALSE, which proves this assumption wrong. I like to make a very stable case so I'll prove it farther wrong by saying that this assumption also make's Joshua's statement FALSE. Joshua did not do it.
