your diagrams are absolutely correct!
I suggest you post them so that others can understand these concepts; after all, a picture is worth a thousand words.

all the "rules" for cr is to help us criticize the argument. dont apply the rules incorrectly. in fact, there is no rules for all cases. the rules are correct in some cases and is a relative help.

Great diagrams ..
However there are couple of more scenarios need to be added.

In case of casual relationship , it is assumed that Cause always happenes before the effect.
So we can use this point to create two more scenarios.

Weaken -
1) Result happened before cause happened. This will break the argument.

Strenghten -
1) Result did not happened before cause happened. This will help strengthen the argument.

Hope this helps :)
