(a) If there is money in my account, I will give the rent. If I do not pay the rent, I will be evicted. I will not be evicted. Therefore, there is money in my account.

(b) If there is money in my account, I will pay the rent. If I do not pay the rent, I will be evicted. I will be evicted. Thus, there is no money in my account.

(c) If there is money in my account, I will pay the rent. I will be evicted, if and only if I do not pay the rent. I will be evicted. Thus, there is no money in my account.
