One form of reasoning holds that by eliminating all possible explanations until only one remains, that one should be accepted. Critics argue that the flaw in this form of reasoning is that one cannot know about all possible explanations.

Which of the following examples best supports this criticism?
a) the possible causes of heart disease
b) the possible results of rolling dice
c) the possible family members who left the house unlocked
d) the possible candidates running for mayor of Atlanta, Georgia
e) the possible countries with nuclear weapons

Yeah..A seems to be the best. Fnding all explanations for others seems to be easier.

A seems the best in the lot though a cardiologist can diagnose and provide all
possible causes of the heart disease.

Clear A.
All other options seem to have finite possibilities except A (POE :) )

I disagree with ur statement that a cordilogist can provide all possible causes...none can account for all the variables..not even a cardiologist :lol:

Sure, heart disease can have multiple causes. Imagine trying to pinpoint the cause for a chain smoking, alchohol and drug abusing, greasy food eating rock star with a family history of heart disease? :?

Now what if the same CR asked: "Which of the following least supports this criticism?"

In this case I would have to guess (B). If we could somehow find a way to consistently predict the outcome of a dice roll, Las Vegas would go bankrupt. :shock:
