Logical fallacies | English homework help


, review the following statements for logical fallacies, identifying and explaining the fallacy in each:

  1. All      people from the north look down on southerners as inbred, illiterate folks      who say “you’ll”. Never say “you’ll” with a southern drawl and you will      not be looked down upon by a northerner. 
  2. Many      students should not use certain useless websites for their sources, such      as Wikipedia. 
  3. Many      students, by the time they reach college, know how to read and write.      Therefore, there is no need to have classes designed for teaching      literature and composition.
  4. He      should not have to go to jail because he broke his back and leg jumping      from the second story of a building while trying to flee the scene of the      crime.
  5. Poverty      causes young women to become strippers and prostitutes.
  6. Four      out of five doctors claim that Trident gum will help whiten teeth.
  7. Over      the past few years, a number of Catholic priests have been accused of      pedophilia. The Catholic Church has seen steady decline in their membership.      The pedophile priests have caused this decline.
  8. Binge      eating and binge drinking are both addictive habits that cause harm, so      they should both be illegal. 
  9. Prisons      either need to release criminals who have been convicted of drug charges,      or we will continue to see a rise in over-crowded prisons.
  10. She      uses a cane, so she must have foot problems.
  11. Tom      Paulin, a well-known poet, has been invited to speak to the poetry      department at Harvard. I oppose this symposium because his anti-Semitic      views have caused great controversy in the past.
  12. Many      listeners of rap music use the “n” word as do many of the rappers who make      the music. This music instigates racial slurs and, therefore, should be      banned.
