  1. If we let
    a = she studies for the exam
    b = she goes to the market
    c = she cleans her room
    d = she practices her sport

    I) a -> b
    II) ~c -> a
    III) ~d -> ~b

    A) ~b -> ~d
    B) a -> d (yes - transitivity)
    C) ~b -> d
    D) c -> b

    B is true because the contrapositive of III is b -> d

    So, a -> b -> d
