  1. If a cow, then mammal - hypothesis

    If a mammal then a cow - converse, invalid

    If not a cow , then not a mammal - inverse, invalid

    If not a mammal, then not a cow - contrapositive - true

    Here:
    If NT teaches, then pass - hypothesis

    If pass, then NT - converse, invalid

    If not NT, then not pass - inverse, invalid

    If not pass, then not NT - contrapositive, true (this is your case)
