In the following argument which fallacy is committed: 1. the decision as to what courses should be required of all university students should be left to the faculty senate. 2. if students are given a voice in this matter it won't be long before the students dictate who should be hired and fired. 3. in no time they'll take over the administrative functions as well, and the university will collapse.
- Slippery slope fallacy.
A logical fallacy exemplifies flawed or faulty reasoning that functions to disprove the logic of the argument. The given argument displays 'slippery slope fallacy' that implies an error where a small(minor) and less significant initial steps leading to a crucial, considerable, and significant effect or event. Similarly, in the given example, the argument begins with a peripheral step 'what courses should be required of all university students' leading to a serious and notable effect 'university will collapse'. Thus, the argument reflects 'slippery slope fallacy'.
A. I only
In a fallacy:
- premises are presented that are unclear enough to allow for more than one conclusion
- A single conclusion is drawn from these premises
Therefore, no personal attrack is involved and there's no appeal to lack of evidence, only premises presented in an unclear way.
a. non sequitur
Non sequitur is a Latin phrase that means “it does not follow”. It means that the conclusion reached does not follow from the premise. Many times, the examples of a non sequitur argument are extremely disconnected, but many others can be hard to spot.
Syllogism is a kind of logical argument that uses deductive reasoning to reach at a conclusion based on two or more premises that are considered truthful.
Syllogistic arguments many times are shown in a three-line form. Here's a famous example
All men are mortal.
Socrates is a man.
Therefore, Socrates is mortal.
A fallacy of syllogism would cause the premises or the conclusion to falsely connect. And that would cause it to be a Non Sequitur.
A. I only
Explanation: I just took the test
Answer :A is the correct answer
answer is II. popular appeal
Explanation: i just took the test n found out
b. People often show a tendency to favor conclusions matching the premise.
The syllogistic reasoning states that in order to reach a conclusion, it is necessary to evaluate two or three premises previously stated, that is, through two or three true information about a given situation, it is possible to reach the conclusion of something.
Based on this, we can say that an example of fallacy behind the mental model theory of syllogistic reasoning is "People often show a tendency to favor conclusions matching the premise."
People often show a tendency to favor conclusions matching the premise.
syllogistic reasoning is a logical argument consisting of two premises and a conclusion. we have to decide whether the conclusion is valid in the light of the premises depends on whether it follows logically from the premises.
III. hasty generalization
A syllogistic fallacy is more of a generalization than it is a sequence or analogy. This error of reasoning occurs by first mentioning something broad/general then proceeds to make a conclusion about something that is very specific by means of generalizing. For example, this would be considered fallacy of syllogism:
All jets are air crafts. All propeller airplanes are air crafts. Therefore, propeller airplanes are jets.
Thus, you can see how a generalization is made about propeller airplanes being jets because they are both air crafts.
