The language setting up those relationships would be unambiguous, LSAT2018, and for your #5 it would usually be done with a "both" structure: If both A and B occur, then C must occur. Or, in the alternative, if C does not occur, then A and B cannot both occur. The use of "both" is common. They could also just use an "and" structure: if A occurs and B occurs, then C occurs.
For #4, it would probably look somewhat obvious, too: If A does not occur, or if B does occur, then C must occur. There should be no doubt about the intended meaning, and you shouldn't make any effort to creatively interpret what you read. They should be pretty clear on their face. If you find one that isn't, let us know and we'll help you through it!
