an argument in which the conclusion mustbe true if the premises are true Strength is the quality of an argument in which the conclusion is probably true if the premises are true Deductive logic is the study of methods for testing Whether an argument is valid Inductive logic is the study of methods for testing Whether an argument is strong An immediate inference is an argument in which a conclusion is based on just one premise A term is distributed in a categorical statement if the statement says something about every member of the class denoted by the term Basic methods BIG PICTURE study sheet
