Which of Mill’s methods does this describe?Method of agreementMethod of differenceJoint method of agreement and differenceMethod of concomitant variationFlag this QuestionQuestion 141 ptsWhat type of inductive argument is the following example?Every Eagles record I have heard has been great, so probably all of their albums are great.Argument from analogyInductive generalizationStatistical syllogismInference to the best explanationFlag this QuestionQuestion 151 ptsWhat does it mean for an argument to be cogent?It is valid and sound.It is inductively strong and has all true premises.It has a structure that is intended to be valid.All of the above.Flag this QuestionQuestion 161 ptsIf thing A is always true whenever thing B is, then ____________.B is a sufficient condition for AA is a sufficient condition for BA and B are both sufficient conditions for each otherNone of the aboveFlag this QuestionQuestion 171 ptsIn the “What is a ‘Strong’ Argument?” video, what is the line at which we call an argument logically strong?There is no strict line at which inductive arguments become strong; it is a matter of context.It is strong if it confers a 90% likelihood on its conclusion.It is only truly strong if the conclusion is absolutely certain.It has all true premises and the conclusion is likely.Flag this QuestionQuestion 181 ptsUsing the hypothetico-deductive method how does one go about trying to test a hypothesis?One deduces a consequence from it and tests whether it occurs.One seeks tests that will verify its truth.One avoids situations in which the hypothesis might fail.One changes the hypothesis to fit the data.Flag this QuestionQuestion 191 ptsWhich of the following is the weakest example of causal reasoning?Claiming that a rock broke the window when one finds a shattered window and a stone in one’s living roomClaiming that the caffeine from the coffee one drank at 10 p.m. made it hard to sleepClaiming that one got into a car wreck because someone was textingClaiming that one lost a bet because a black cat walked across one’s pathFlag this QuestionQuestion 201 ptsAccording to one of Mill’s methods, if there is only one factor that is present in a case in which the effect is seen and absent in cases in which it is not seen then that factor may be causally related to the effect in question. Which of Mill’s methods does this describe?Method of agreementMethod of differenceInductive reasoningMethod of concomitant variation
