Exercise 7-9 Given the premises, discuss whether the conclusion of each argument that follows is (a) true beyond a reasonable doubt, (b) probably true, or (c) possibly true or possibly false. You should expect disagreement on these items, but the closer your answers are to your instructor’s, the better. 2. The annual rainfall in California’s north valley averages twenty-three inches. So the rainfall next year will be twenty-three inches. C. This statement is possibly true or false. The premis that California’s north valley averages twenty-three inches is a mathmatical logic based on more than two years of data. An average is a number in-between a set of numbers. Although these numbers are a result of more than one, it is possible that the average is what will occur next year. The person who wrote this makes a good, sound argument. 3. You expect to get forty miles to the gallon in that? Why, that old wreck has a monster V8; besides, it’s fifty years old and needs an overhaul. B. The premis is possibly true.
