• Weaken the Argument Questions,
• Strength the Argument Questions,
• Assumption Questions,
• Must be True/Inference Questions,
• Bold-Face Questions,
• Dialogs – Method of Reasoning Questions,
• Provide the Conclusion Questions
• Evaluate the Argument Questions,
• Parallel & Flaw in Reasoning Questions,
