Clearly I'm having a hard time mapping out logic... Can someone please explain the correct answer? Also any tips on how to improve mapping out logic would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

    Let's begin by diagramming the statement that the author believes to be absurd: if gov refuses to support then it does not allow" This can be diagrammed as: /GS-->/A.

    How does the author show this is absurd? By rewording the relationship: A-->GS
    (you may be able to form an argument that government subsidy and government support are different things, but I am taking them to be synonymous in this instance in order to keep the variables consistent). Thus, the author is rewording the initial statement in the form of its contrapositive.

    So, our job is to look for a statement that is simply reworded into its contrapositive. This occurs in answer choice A.

    /arrested-->/BL
    reworded: BL-->Arrested

    The contrapositive! We win!

    Hope this helps!
