Which is logically equivalent to ~p -> q?
a.) ~q -> p
b.) ~q -> ~p
c.) q -> p
d.) q -> ~p

1. I am not certain of your usage of ->, but I have a technique you can use that will work always.

Construct a truth table, such as this:

2. It is just like your previous post. The contrapositive of

~p -> q

reverses the direction of implication, and the logical values:

~(q) -> ~(~p)
~q -> p
