Reptiles are air-breathing vertebrates with completely ossified skeletons; so alligators must be air-breathing vertebrates with completely ossified skeletons.

In terms of its logical features, the argument above most resembles which one of the following?

(A) Green plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen back into the air; so it follows that grass takes in carbon dioxide and releases oxygen into the air.

(B) Some red butterflies are poisonous to birds that prey on them: so this particular red butterfly is poisonous to birds that prey on it.

(C) Knowledge about the empirical world can be gained from books; so Virginia Woolfs' book A Room of One's Own must provide knowledge about the empirical world.

(D) Dierdre has seen every film directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder: so Dierdre must have seen Ali: Fear Eats the Soul, a film directed by Fassbinder.

(E) Skiers run a high risk of bone fracture: so it is likely that Lindsey, who has been an avid skier for many years, has suffered a broken bone at some point

Is this a trap?

Class X has property Y, therefore member of class X has property Y.

A?

Hi stoolfi,

Why you answer only few question and leave out others. Are they too easy for you. Answering one question and leaving out others does not justify that u r busy. You might have seen them in the past then.

Many times I see that you folks post reply within few minutes. How do you know that a new question has been posted. Is there a way to configure my profile so that I get a mail evertime a new question is posted?

Being busy is my excuse. Since I've only read OG and Kaplan, 99% of this stuff is new to me. Some questions I do not answer because they are too easy, some because they are too difficult and I have no idea, some because ten people have already posted the answer that I agree with ten times...

It's a miracle that I haven't yet been fired from my job for surfing this board all day!

The correct answer is A.
What about dead grass or the grass that is not green.
I thought there is a flaw in A and no flaw in the stem of the question. There is no alligator in the word that is not reptile. Well then again there might be dead alligators. Unnecessary thinking I guess.

I was struggling between A and D. I endedup chosing D. Again one can always say so many people have the same last name.

I wonder why sandeep chose C. I apologize if I have made him get distracted by my opening sentence as a caution.

Sorry folks if I have put some pressure on you to get you to answer the questions. I am right now at home for 10 days. So I have all the time. I guess I will be in your condition from monday onwards.

There is no doubt that A is the answer

Can someone explain why option 'D' is incorrect!
