Having just completed Introductory Logic 9, I feel competent to instruct others in the intricacies of this wonderful discipline. Logic is concerned with correct reasoning in the form of syllogisms. A syllogism consists of three statements, two of which are premises, the third of which is the conclusion. Here is an example.

MAJOR PREMISE: The American buffalo is disappearing.
MINOR PREMISE: The Animal is an American buffalo.
CONCLUSION: Therefore, this animal is disappearing.

Once one has been indoctrinated into the mysteries of this arcane science, there is no statement he may not assert with complete confidence.

The main purpose of the author's argument is to

A) provide instruction in logic
B) supply a definition
C) cast doubt on the value of formal logic.
D) present an argument for the protection of American buffalo.
E) show the precise relationship between the premises and the conclusion of his example.


IтАЩve two questions,

1. What is the meaning of тАЬthere is no statement he may not assert with compete confidenceтАЭ
2. answer to the question and the underlying reasoning.

My vote goes to B.

A definition of 'Syllogism' has been given, with a supporting example, but no explanation of the example i.e. there is nothing that shows the 'the precise relationship between the premises and the conclusion of his example'.

I'll also go with E.
The author gives the relationship between the premises and conclusion and on the basis of that states that ' there is no statement he may not assert with complete confidence '.

Hmmm...I think it is A)
The main purpose of his argument is to provide instruction in logic. In his example the author gives an example of syllogism, which consists of 2 premises and a conclusion.
So think that the main purpose of his/her argument is instructive. or A)
