2. The issue is whether infants can recognize human voices as early as 7 months of age. The conclusion infants can recognize human voices as early as 7 months of age. The premise states Researchers have studied brain activity in 32 infants, half of whom were 4 months of age and the other half 7 months old. Premise explains how Researchers played different sounds, including human voices speaking nonsense languages, and brain activity suggested the 7-month-olds could distinguish the human voice from the other sounds, and the 4-month-olds could not. 3. This is an inductive generalization 4. The argument is weak. Obviously, the strengths are the continuity of the samples taken, having them all around the same age in months, but its weakness is sample size. Sample size would have to be much larger to make a proper generalization, but that may not be the researchers fault. 1.

    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.
