If the passage does contain an argument, indicate the conclusion. - Command (nothing relevant to an argument) 19. I just can’t sleep tonight. That coffee I drank at the party must not have been decaffeinated. Explanation - Argument 20. When we think of the casualties of war, we take some small comfort in thinking of the heroics of the soldiers who gave their lives. But as natural as that may be, it’s tragically mistaken.

    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.
