Answer

conditional - true converse - false inverse - false contrapositive - true

Work Step by Step

The converse swaps the hypothesis and the conclusion. If you play football, then you are a quarterback. False. A linebacker is a counerexample. The inverse negates the hypothesis and the conclusion. If you are not a quarterback, then you do not play football. False. A linebacker is a counterexample. The contrapositive both swaps and negates the hypothesis and conclusion. If you do not play football, then you are not a quarterback. Because the conditional is true, the contrapositive is too.
