let the meaning aside, just set P : " she is stuck in traffic" and Q : " she is late" statement 1: P \(\rightarrow\) Q statement 2 : Q \(\rightarrow\)P statement3: \(\neg Q\rightarrow\neg P\) for Sue conclusion: "statement 2 is converse of statement 3 AND statement2 is contraposition of statement1" for the second part, \(Q\rightarrow P\) is not contrapostion of \(P\rightarrow Q\) therefore, Sue's conclusion is not correct for Kim's conclusion: "statement 1 is inverse of statement 2 and...." It's not true then, final answer is " none of them is correct" That's my very own opinion.
