Ans : (B)
A statement is logically equivalent to its contrapositive.
To form the contrapositive, switch the "If" and  "then" sections
of the statement AND insert "NOTs" into each section.
Notice in this situation, that inserting
"NOTs" turns the thoughts positive (you are negating negative thoughts).
