I think you are actually quite close to working this out for yourself - which is awesome. Hopefully I can help a bit.
We have a couple of conditional statements:
(S) Effective -> (N) Conveys message
(S) Humorous -> (N) Conveys message, Attract attention
These statements can't really be chained in any way. But the flaw in the answer is that it treats a sufficient condition (humorous) as being the only possible sufficient condition that could convey a message. But for all we know, there could be plenty of other ways to convey a message and be "effective." You are correct when you say that if (c) were flipped, it would be a flaw: it does treat a sufficient condition (humorous) as necessary...when it is not. It doesn't say that conveying a message is a sufficient condition. I hope that helps!
