Solution :-

(i) Contrapositive: If x is not odd, then x is not a prime number.
Converse: If x is odd, then x is a prime number.

(ii) Contrapositive: If two lines intersect in the same plane, then they are not parallel.
Converse: If two lines do not intersect in the same plane, then they are parallel.

(iii) Contrapositive: If something does not have low temperature, then it is not cold.
Converse: If something has low temperature, then it is cold.

(iv) Contrapositive: If you know how to reason deductively, then you can comprehend geometry.
Converse: If you do not know how to reason deductively, then you cannot comprehend geometry.

(v) Contrapositive: If x is not divisible by 4 , then x is not an even number.
Converse: If x is divisible by 4 , then x is an even number
