Practice Exam Questions Informal Fallacies: Advertisements claim that the new Pride detergent gets your clothes whiter and brighter than any other brand. Since no one has disproved this claim, we must conclude that it is true. a. Appeal to unqualified authority b. Accident c. Amphiboly d. Division e. Appeal to ignorance RATIONALE: This argument appeals to a lack of evidence as its sole premise. Remember, a lack of evidence proves nothing! Mr. Referee, surely our team was not offside on that last play. Our team has already had ten penalties this quarter, we’re trailing by three touchdowns, and several of our parents traveled hundreds of miles to see this game. a. Appeal to pity b. Straw man c. Missing the point d. Appeal to force e. Slippery slope RATIONALE: It is not relevant to the judgment call of the referee that they had a lot invested in the game. This argument appeals to our emotions, specifically, pity. Fill in the blank (and tell why it is that fallacy).
