The first statement can be slightly reworded:

>In all scenarios where Bob would have a sponge, he would also have square pants.

So, we know that if Bob didn't have square pants, then he must not have a sponge (because he has square pants whenever he has a sponge). Hence, only if Bob has square pants is it even a possibility that Bob has a sponge.

I’d recommend drawing a table with **sponge** and **no sponge** across the top and **square pants** and **unsquare pants** down the side. This should give you four table cells to fill in. Read the first statement and fill the cells with **true**, **false**, and **unknown** (cannot be determined with the information given).

Make two copies of the table and fill them in for each statement. Does that help any?
