When looking at an answer with a two path possible strategy, I look for a question that necessarily weakens, and strengthens or one that answers the authors conclusion, on a yes, it will weaken, and no, this strengthens the authors claim/conclusion? How do I determine the difference? By knowing the assumption, or correct assumption? I don't know if I'm on the right track with this?

In order to achieve correct answers, I must be able to determine the following from the argument 1)conclusion 2)premises 3)brain storm assumptions? Then find an answer with a 2 path possibility? Yes, weakens claim, and No, strengthens authors claim? I guess it's confusing, but is this correct?
