Each numbered question was worth 2 points – for a total of 10 points. 1.  Define “valid argument” in Logic. IF the premises are true, the conclusion MUST be true. Note:  The “IF” is crucial – otherwise what you are talking about is a sound argument.  Folks  who omitted the “IF” got half-credit. Saying it “leads” to conclusion or anything like that was too vague [because it could apply to  inductive and other arguments] and so was only worth half-credit. Bonus:  According to the Logic Primer, in a valid argument the premises __ ENTAILS ______  (technical term) the conclusion.   (+1) 2.  Identify (by naming it or giving an explanation) the fallacy in this argument: Government ownership of public utilities is a dangerous doctrine,  because it is  socialistic. BEST ANSWER [FULL CREDIT]:  Begging the Question or Petitio Principii.
