    You need to move backwards on this. A statement and it's contradictory cannot both by true. The contradictory of "All prophets are intuitive." would be "No prophets are intuitive." The obverse of a statement replaces the predicate term of the proposition with its complement and reverses the quality of the proposition. The obverse of "No prophets are intuitive." would be "All prophets are non-intuitive." To write a converse proposition, put the predicate term of the original proposition in the subject place of the new proposition and the subject term of the original in the predicate place of the new. Or just switch places with the predicate term and subject term. The converse of "All prophets are non-intuitive." would be "All non-intuitives are prophets."

    \(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @wwhitlock The contradictory of "All prophets are intuitive." would be "No prophets are intuitive." \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) For contradictions, one must be true and one must be false. They can't be both true or both false.

    CONVERSE THE OBVERSE OF THE CONTRADICTORY OF: ALL PROPHETS ARE INTUITIVE Okay we start with: All prophets are intuitive. The contradiction of All S are P is Some S aren't P The obverse of Some S aren't P is Some S are nonP The converse of Some S are nonP is Some nonP are S So, we have Some non-intuitive (people) are prophets

    Looks like I didn't follow the rule all the way on the third step. I'm glad you were able to have it explained to you.
