Before we solve the given question, we must first know what a statement is and what kind of statement is given in the question. A statement is a sentence that is either true or false but not both. Now, the statement given in the question is conditional. A statement is written in the form of “If P then Q” is called a conditional statement. In our case, P is “I have a Siberian Husky” and Q is “I have a dog”.

Now, the converse of any conditional statement. “If P then Q” is given by “If Q then P”. Thus, the converse of the conditional statement given in the question will be: “If I have a dog then I have a Siberian Husky”.

Hence, option (b) is the right answer.
