Ahmed Abdulla September 13, 2019 500767532 CPHL 214 1: Identifying Arguments Exercise 1 1. This is not an argument. It is an explanation. It is defining the term “depending on testimony”. 2. This is an argument with a clear premise that supports the conclusion. It uses the connecting word, “therefore”, that is often used in arguments and raises a clear point that is supported by the premise. The argument the author is trying to make is clearly stated in the conclusion. The conclusion is: “Therefore, no one can know any claim with certainty.” 3. This is an argument (although not a very strong one). There is a premise that supports the conclusion. The argument the author is trying to make is clearly stated in the conclusion. The conclusion is: “So we can see that no atheist can demonstrate his loyalty to the state.” 4. This is not an argument. It is a statement. There is no clear premise or conclusion.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
