Nobody Reads on Weekends Anyway

As I am busy doing Real Work, I will instead just post a very specialized question for you (passed on to me by someone else):

Consider the two following math (logic) problems:
  1. Write the inverse of the statement: If A, then B.
  2. Write the converse of the statement: If A, then B.
(Note to those who have forgotten: the "inverse" is "If not A, then not B.")

If these two questions were translated into Chinese, would they still be distinct questions, or would they be identical?
