Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large \text{If} \text{ a polygon is a square}, \text{then} \text{ it is a quadrilateral}\] \[\Large \text{If} \color{red}{\text{ a polygon is a square}}, \text{then} \color{blue}{\text{ it is a quadrilateral}}\] \[\Large \text{If} \color{red}{\text{ P}}, \text{then} \color{blue}{\text{ Q}}\] \[\Large \text{If} \color{blue}{\text{ Q}}, \text{then} \color{red}{\text{ P}}\] \[\Large \text{If} \color{blue}{\text{ it is a quadrilateral}}, \text{then} \color{red}{\text{ a polygon is a square}}\] The swap doesn't go 100% smoothly in terms of being grammatically correct, but hopefully that made sense.
