DARK WOOL CARDIGAN DARK DARK WOOL WOOL HAMPSTEAD CARDIGAN INDIGO HAMPSTEAD INDIGO HAMPSTEAD CARDIGAN INDIGO The discussion of conditional claims requires us to think more about the meaning of the term "condition."
We've already said that "If A, then B," means that if we have A, then we know that B must follow. But then we also said that "A, only if B" means that if we do not have B, then we will not have A.
These two conditional claims, "If A, then B" and "A, only if B" refer to two different kinds of conditions: INDIGO WOOL INDIGO WOOL HAMPSTEAD HAMPSTEAD HAMPSTEAD CARDIGAN WOOL DARK DARK DARK CARDIGAN INDIGO CARDIGAN necessarywinter Boutique Dress B Arden Casual dqZA7q conditions and CARDIGAN CARDIGAN WOOL WOOL HAMPSTEAD DARK HAMPSTEAD DARK WOOL DARK INDIGO HAMPSTEAD CARDIGAN INDIGO INDIGO sufficient conditions.
If we say that "x is a necessary condition for y," we mean that if we don't have x, then we won't have y. Or put differently, without x, you won't have y. To say that x is a necessary condition for y does not mean that x guarantees y.

Having gasoline in my car (I have a gasoline engine) is a necessary condition for my car to start. Without gasoline (x) my car (y) will not start. Of course, having gasoline in the car does not guarantee that my car will start. There are many other conditions needed for my car to start.
Having oxygen in the earth's atmosphere is a necessary condition for human life. Certainly, having oxygen will not guarantee human life. There are many other conditions needed for human life other than oxygen in the atmosphere.
Being 18 years of age is a necessary condition for being able to buy cigarettes legally in North Carolina. Of course, being 18 does not guarantee that a person will buy cigarettes. There are many other conditions that lead to a person buying cigarettes than being 18 years of age.
