User: "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

Weegy: 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. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hasty_generalization ]

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

Note: NECESSARY VALID

Note: I'm sorry that that wasn't a good answer. Please hold on while I contact an expert.

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. ] ]
