Write a false conditional statement. Is it possible to insert the word "not" into your conditional to make it true? If so,write the true conditional.
FalseIf all male are human, then all human are male.
TrueIf all male are human, then all human are not male.
Does this make any sense? If not could you guy give me an idea on how to solve this one? Thanks

Your conditional statement is "If all males are human . . ."
If you insert "not" in this statement, then you'd have: "If all males are not human . . . "
If all males are not human, then some males must not be human.
Isn't that a true statement? (Think about lower animals that are male.)

Yes. I thought I'm only allow to use the word "not" once. Thanks

How about . . .
If all males are not human, then some males are animals.
