In english language i use sufficiency and necessity interchangeably to mean the same thing (is that right?) this is now preventing me from understanding the conditional connectives, and i fear i might end up remembering what each of the conditional statements mean (eg: for "Q is necessary condition for P" i could just remember that what comes first is the consequent) but i wanted it to come as naturally as the rest of the logical connectives. So can someone close the gap between the math and language here?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks :)
