This is the assignment that is due, I need to write a paper on it.

style="background-color:rgb(255,218,130);color:rgb(45,59,69);">If an argument has true premises and a true conclsuion, then the argument is sound. An argument has true premises, if it is unsound. An argument is sound only if it has a true conclusion. The premises are false, if the conclusion is true. An argument is sound but unsound. Therefore, if the conclusion is true, then the conclusion is true.I have this assignment due in a essay format with the following question and direction.

Please evaluate this argument. Is it valid? Explain in terms of a full truth table. If one premise is a contradiction, is the argument valid? if the conclusion is a tautology, is the argument valid? (Explain these last two points in terms of a truth table that includes only the last premise and the conclusion. This truth table should only have four rows.) Is the argument sound? Can any argument with a contradiction as a premise be sound? Explain why each premise is true or false. Explain why the conclusion is true or false.

This is the direction I am given to complete the task.

Thank you for any guidence.
