Mike (or anyone really),

Can you please help me clear up some confusion I am having from the first example “Leon will only attend if Sarah does not”? What is the difference in the way it was presented in the trainer and me stating “Leon will attend only if Sarah does not”? Not realizing this was wrong, I drew my diagram with Sarah as the necessary condition resulting in L -> -S Thank you.

Edit: I think I am overthinking a little bit. it turns out L -> -S is the correct diagram. But can I think this way on the test (changing it to “only if”) thus making it easier on me mentally?
