Chapter 4 Hw Ex 2. 1. The premises are acceptable ( A) because they are relevant (R ) to the overall conclusion of the statement. However there are not enough grounds (G) leading to the conclusion as it talks about jealousy, anger and is more likely to happen to people with siblings because of the competitions held in order to receive their parents attention. 2 . This is an inductive argument because of the premises, they are not linked to each other but they are independent sections of the conclusion. Starting with the first premise this is basic knowledge that animals are not human beings. The second premise is also common knowledge that animals do not spread the same language as human beings do. The third premise however is more acceptable (A) because animals do not have the same advanced cultures and technologies as human beings do. All premises are somewhat acceptable (A) because they are common knowledge. Overall the premise are relevant ( R) to the conclusion because each premise gives a statement that animals do not have moral rights 3. The premises are acceptable (A), the premises 1, 2,and 3 all are relevant (R ) to the conclusion and there is sufficient grounds (G) that proves the conclusion that innate ideas do not exist. 5. This is an inductive argument because not all of the premises are exactly linked to each other. The premises are acceptable (A) and they are somewhat relevant ( R ) because they all talk about how math all includes a lot of knowledge with each premise holding a breakthrough. And the grounds are there (G) proving the overall conclusion that math is the highest form of knowledge. 8. This is an argument (A) because the university is making a generalization statement that the students are not working as hard as the students last year did. The premise is acceptable because it is a personal experience to the university. The premises are also relevant (R ) to the conclusion because the premise talks about how students in his present psychology class do not work as hard as students in his psychology class did last
year. The ground is missing because this is just a sample from a broader population and is not representative of the entire population of the university. 12. P1. Francais left a rich family to help the poor P2. Could have helped the poor by keeping his fortune and used it directly on them P3. Became a poor man himself and went around negging C4.

The argument is relevant (R ) because St. Francis has done highly efficient and questionable methods to lead him to property and his reputation is better than it deserves to be.There is also enough grounds (G) to accept the conclusion as the premises provide many grounds to believe that St. Francis' reputation was better than it deserved to be. 13. P1. We are so accustomed to hearing them that we scarly notice they are there C2. Commonly used words do not catch our attention C3. Effective writing uses a richly varied vocabulary The premise is acceptable (A) because of the P1 and C2, commonly used words do not catch our attention because we are so accustomed to hearing them that we scarly notice they are there which are relevant ( R) to our conclusion that effective writing uses a richly varied vocabulary, however not enough grounds (G) to accept the overall conclusion. 14. This is not an argument (A) because the premises do not link to each other, there is no relevance ® between them or grounds (G) that can draw a conclusion. 16. This is not an argument (A), the premises do not link because they talk about transforming the doctor/patient relationship to Mcdonalds/ burger eater relationship. The relevancy ( R) is not there nor is there enough ground (G) to make a conclusion 17 . This is not an argument (A), premises that do not link to each other, starting with Australia than food, cafes. There is no relevance ( R) or ground (G).
