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
