    I'll only do a) to give you an idea and I'll leave b for you to do it.

    a)Statement: If the world is round, then no one can fall over the edge.
    Converse: If no one can fall over the edge, then the world is round.
    Contrapositive: If it is false that no one can fall over the edge, then the world is not round.
