Hello.  The question you ask is difficult to answer in a way that will
help you without some examples.

'and' means that both values have to be true and 'or' means at least
one of the values has to be true

true and true = true
true and false = false
false and true = false
false and false = false

true or true = true
true or false = true
false or true = true
false or false = false

Can you mock up some examples based on your experience of what you
*are* getting and what you *want* to get?
