PRECIS 2 ASSIGNMENT Exercise 5.28 1. (1) Nearly 70% of married men and 60% of married women have had affairs , and, (2) among my clients, 8 out of 10 who have committed adultery regret having done so . It’s reasonable to conclude, then, that (3) about 80% of all adulterers regret having cheated. —Holly Hein, Sexual Detours P1 : Nearly 70% of married men and 60% of married women have had affairs. P2 : among the writers’ clients, 8 out of 10 who have committed adultery regret having done so. Conclusion : About 80% of all adulterers’ regret having cheated. 1+2 3 This passage by Holly Hein contains an argument. It includes 3 claims. The issue is whether adulterers regret having cheated. The conclusion states that about 80% of all adulterers’ regret having cheated. The first premise is nearly 70% of married men and 60% of married women have had affairs. The second premise is that among the writers’ clients, 8 out of 10 who have committed adultery regret having done so. The argument is an inductive generalization. The argument is weak and uncogent. 7. (1) Veganism is not merely a social philosophy or dietary preference . (2) It may be entitled to legal protection. This is because (3) the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission regulations protect religious practices , and (4) a commitment to veganism is similar to traditional religious views in that it is based on moral or ethical beliefs on right and wrong that are sincerely held . —U.S. District Judge S. Arthur Spiegel, Sakile S. Chenzira v. Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center 2

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
