  • I agree, but does the fact we’ve rewritten it as an argument in the standard form mean the letter was an argument all along?

    I agree with Patrick - there isn’t an argument in the letter. I initially thought there was because the opening sounded like a conclusion and I wondered if there were any suppressed premises or conclusions I was missing. But the more I read it, the more it seemed to be a statement followed by explanations and any statements that could be considered premises...

  • did anyone else first the first one scarily easily? i’m now doubting if i’m right

    *if i’m right - HINT/SPOILER ALERT*
    i focused on the fact it’s plural, there are equal numbers of boys and girls and the information right there on the page and my answer clicked. i never tried to work out much about the ‘types’ of buns. i never tried a bunch of different...

  • that was intense i put (4squared + 4 + 4) / 4 but i don’t know how right that is because it’s been a while since i’ve done maths like this and i’ve forgotten what is and isn’t allowed

  • i’m british and i remember always being told as a kid if i ate apple seeds an apple tree would grow in my stomach but it just made me want to try it more to see if i actually could!

  • nothing says ‘i’m running out of ways to argue my point’ like resorting to insulting the opposition

  • that’s the fallacy fallacy ... the point the argument is making may well still be true and still needs to be evaluated properly, even if the argument is being made poorly

  • @SabitaMenon i think in a real life situation, speeding becomes useless. for example, if the speed limit is 40 km/h and you’re growing frustrated that you’re stuck behind someone going 35km/h because you have somewhere to be and want to be going 39km/h it’s poor critical thinking because really even if you were stuck behind that car for your entire journey...

  • Hi! I’m a british 19yo currently NEET and I want to improve my critical thinking skills both for my daily life and for once I return to education.
