"I bought a pair of shoes from that store that immediately fell apart. Their shoes are no good" may commit which fallacy? Appeal to ignorance Hasty generalization Ad pedibus
Begging the question
That is an example of Hasty generalization. [ Hasty generalization is a logical fallacy of faulty generalization by reaching an inductive generalization based on insufficient evidence ? essentially making a hasty conclusion without considering all of the variables. In statistics, it may involve basing broad conclusions regarding the statistics of a survey from a small sample group that fails to
sufficiently represent an entire population. ]

User: A student asks a teacher for a one-day extension. The teacher says if she gives a one-day extension, then she would have to give a two-day extension, then a three-day extension, and eventually not have any deadlines. This might be an example of the ad hominem fallacy. ad baculum fallacy. appeal to popularity fallacy. slippery slope fallacy.

Weegy: slippery slope fallacy

User: If an argument does not commit a fallacy, it is (Points : 1) necessarily valid. necessarily sound. Not enough information to determine Both A and B





Weegy: Argument Whether we are consciously aware of it or not, our arguments all follow a certain basic structure. [ They begin with one or more premises, which are facts that the argument takes for granted as the starting point. [ Then a principle of logic is applied in order to come to a conclusion. This structure is often illustrated symbolically with the following example: Premise1: If A = B, Premise2: and B = C Logical connection: Then (apply principle of equivalence) Conclusion: A = C In order for an argument to be considered valid the logical form of the argument must work ? must be valid. A valid argument is one in which, if the premises are true, then the conclusion must be true also. However, if one or more premise is false then a valid logical argument may still lead to a false conclusion. A sound argument is one in which the logic is valid and the premises are true, in which case the conclusion must be true. ] ]

Construct a deductive argument that is valid but not sound. Then, construct a valid deductive argument that is sound. Be sure to put the argument in premise-conclusion form.
Weegy: A sound argument must be valid and it must have true premises. It also must not be circular (an argument is circular if the premises assume the truth of the conclusion). [ This means that the easiest way to construct a valid but not sound argument is to use false premises. So a deductive argument that is valid but not sound would be: Premise 1: All donkeys are invertebrates. ] (More)
