    Read the following excerpt, and explain how this excerpt used pathos, logos, and ethos?There is much more to my story and many more tales to tell but I can feel queasiness in my stomach so I believe I will tell no more.  All I can say is that I have become a much stronger woman. I have learned what I don't want and will not just ‘settle’ in a relationship. To me it is all about love, honesty and trust.  I slept for 31 years, and now I am awake. It’s just my dog and me and he makes me smile because he loves me.Back to my beginning, and the commotion that was caused by my birth. To this day, I don't know the entire story, and all the ‘whys’ but I do know that I was not believed to be my father’s child by my grandfather. If you saw my father and then me you would know right away that I was his child.I am grateful for the messy beginnings, though much of it, if given a chance, I would not wish to repeat. I am grateful for those who have loved me and who love me now. I am grateful to God for each breath I take and for the new lives I have been given. As for my children, thank you for your love, patience and encouragement.  My daughter, forgive me for being so weak and taking on my care in my darkest moments. I can only hope that you are proud of how far I have come. My son thanks for loving me just as I am and for being you. My journey is not over. There is still so much to discover and to live for.  God willing, there will be many more chapters to my life.

  • 22. 

    What are three important features of deductive reasoning?

    • A.

      Deductive reasoning links premises with conclusions. If all premises are true, the terms are clear, and the rules of deductive logic are followed, then the conclusion reached is necessarily true.

    • B.

      Deductive reasoning (top-down logic) contrasts with inductive reasoning (bottom-up logic) in the following way: In deductive reasoning, a conclusion is reached reductively by applying general rules that hold over the entirety of a closed domain of discourse, narrowing the range under consideration until only the conclusion is left. In inductive reasoning, the conclusion is reached by generalizing or extrapolating from initial information.

    • C.

      Deductive reasoning, also deductive logic or logical deduction or, informally, "top-down" logic,[1] is the process of reasoning from one or more statements (premises) to reach a logically certain conclusion.[2]

    • D.

      Deductive reasoning is eggs fried sunny-side up.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Deductive reasoning links premises with conclusions. If all premises are true, the terms are clear, and the rules of deductive logic are followed, then the conclusion reached is necessarily true.
    B. Deductive reasoning (top-down logic) contrasts with inductive reasoning (bottom-up logic) in the following way: In deductive reasoning, a conclusion is reached reductively by applying general rules that hold over the entirety of a closed domain of discourse, narrowing the range under consideration until only the conclusion is left. In inductive reasoning, the conclusion is reached by generalizing or extrapolating from initial information.
    C. Deductive reasoning, also deductive logic or logical deduction or, informally, "top-down" logic,[1] is the process of reasoning from one or more statements (premises) to reach a logically certain conclusion.[2]
    Explanation
    Deductive reasoning is a process that connects premises with conclusions. It follows the rules of deductive logic and if all premises are true and the terms are clear, the conclusion reached is necessarily true. Deductive reasoning is different from inductive reasoning as it reaches a conclusion by applying general rules that hold over the entire domain of discourse, narrowing down the range of possibilities until only the conclusion remains. On the other hand, inductive reasoning reaches a conclusion by generalizing or extrapolating from initial information. Deductive reasoning is also known as top-down logic and it involves reasoning from one or more premises to reach a logically certain conclusion.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    Three examples of inductive reasoning are?

    • A.

      Inductive reasoning (as opposed to deductive reasoning) is reasoning in which the premises seek to supply strong evidence for (not absolute proof of) the truth of the conclusion

    • B.

      While the conclusion of a deductive argument is supposed to be certain, the truth of the conclusion of an inductive argument is supposed to be probable, based upon the evidence given

    • C.

      The philosophical definition of inductive reasoning is much more nuanced than simple progression from particular/individual instances to broader generalizations.

    • D.

      Inductive reasoning requires you to use your fingers and toes

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Inductive reasoning (as opposed to deductive reasoning) is reasoning in which the premises seek to supply strong evidence for (not absolute proof of) the truth of the conclusion
    B. While the conclusion of a deductive argument is supposed to be certain, the truth of the conclusion of an inductive argument is supposed to be probable, based upon the evidence given
    C. The philosophical definition of inductive reasoning is much more nuanced than simple progression from particular/individual instances to broader generalizations.
    Explanation
    The answer provides three examples of inductive reasoning. It explains that inductive reasoning involves premises that provide strong evidence for the truth of the conclusion, although it does not provide absolute proof. It contrasts inductive reasoning with deductive reasoning, which aims for a certain conclusion. The answer also mentions that the philosophical definition of inductive reasoning is more complex than simply generalizing from specific instances.
