The three different arguments that display distinct fallacies are;

John is fat because he is lazy.
Not substantiated by fact. This may or may not be true.

Mary and Helen are sisters so they have the same mother.
False conclusion- they may only have the same father.

All Muslims are terrorists.
Semantics- A Muslim may say they are in a war.
Most Muslims are not terrorists so it is a false assumption.

What is an example of an Ad Hominem Fallacy? Give an explanation of why each makes a mistake in drawing the conclusion it does.
Weegy: The abusive ad hominem is not just a case of directing abusive language toward another person. . . . [ The fallacy is committed when one engages in a personal attack as a means of ignoring, discrediting, or blunting the force of another's argument. "Although some faulty arguers may call attention to distasteful features of their opponents in order to manipulate the responses of their audience, most abusers apparently believe that such characteristics actually provide good reasons for ignoring or discrediting the arguments of those who have them. Logically, of course, the fact that any of these characteristics might fit an opponent provides no reason to ignore or discredit his or her arguments or criticisms." ] (More)
