I also wasn't sure whether or not to diagram the second sentence. While "The" seems like a sufficient indicator, I'm uncertain if "unambiguous" is the word indicating a necessary condition. I'm not sure whether to draw a conditional diagram when there isn't a clear indicator.

Hi wisnain,

I would say that the second sentence is difficult to diagram, but not impossible. I don't think that the word "the" is an indicator; part of the difficulty of this sentence is that there aren't very clear indicators.

Here's what we know: people who own SKX Mach-5s are sending an unambiguous message that they are dynamic, aggressive, and successful. If you wanted to diagram that sentence, you could write something like this:

If you own SKX :arrow: sending message that you are D/A/S

However, as you can see, it might be simpler to just think of it in terms of the bolded sentence. When we read that sentence, it becomes clear that (B) is the correct answer—anyone who sends that message without being dynamic and successful are sending a message that is inaccurate.

Does this make sense?
