Just to clarify, if there is an 'unless' statement for a plural conditional statement, would this be right? I would like to clarify whether the and/or changes:

1. (A and B) unless C
Not A or Not B :arrow: C

2. (A or B) unless C
Not A and Not B :arrow: C

3. Not A and B unless C
A or Not B :arrow: C

4. Not A or B unless C
A and Not B :arrow: C

5. Not (A and B) unless C
A and B :arrow: C

Thank you for your prompt response. I was just wondering how the last part would be said in a logical reasoning stimulus. How would I know whether the Not is referring to (A and B) and not just A/B? In other words, how would I distinguish number 4 from number 5?

4. Not A or B unless C
A and Not B :arrow: C

5. Not (A and B) unless C
A and B :arrow: C


PS. Are there any conditional statements like this in logical reasoning/analytical reasoning sections? Please tell me if there are any, because I would love to challenge myself and try them out.
