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)
