    Test 1: 15, 100%
    Test 2: 14, 93% (I got the mary murder scenario wrong)

    I'm struggling with not adding too much context to the questions and data given. They feel like trick questions when I don't, but logic states 'follow the data.'

    spoilers below :
    First test, Question 10.a) Jenny lives in Paris.b) Paris is in New Zealand. I assumed that Paris meant the same location, and not just locations named the same way, which was correct by the tester's rules

    Test 2, Question 12.
    a) Whatever goes up must go down.
    b) The train robbers are up before the beak.

    So here, while I understood that the widely accepted uses of 'going down' aren't the same in both statements, I assumed that as i got question 10 right, same word=same meaning. Otherwise alot of answers could be questioned.

    My reasoning for 12 was, premise 1 says whatever goes up. Whereas premise 2 says the robbers are up. It's ambiguous wording. No reason to assume the robbers went up, so no reason to assume they'll go down.

    The murder scenario one is a common one to catch people out. Unless one of the premises directly equates something to Mary committing the murder, you can never have a valid argument concluding that she committed the murder.

    Well yeah, as murder isn't equal to stabbing, however strong is the correlation you simply cannot say stabbing = murder even if the causal chain seem straightforward, as long as there's uncertainty you simply cannot substitute one term for the other. I still think the guy did less mistakes than the usual tests which are often so ridiculously close minded and self rigtheous that I don't bother finishing them

    Take The Logic Test And see how You Rate.

    all the elements needed to answer the questions are in the questions (for us Ne-er)

    ps: that's more of a 'messing with ur mind' test than an actual deductive/inductive reasoning test, but it's fun

    Lol how annoying.

    Answer 8.
    a) When I get hungry I could eat a horse.
    b) I am hungry now.
    - Therefore I should eat a horse.

    Invalid. If the first premise contained the word 'should' instead of 'could', then the argument would have been valid.

    That sucked. That had nothing to do with logic!


    scored 14/15 just because of a lil sensotardness.



    15/15 on the second test but I do not agree on the reasoning of one of his answers.

    Answer 12.
    a) Whatever goes up must go down.
    b) The train robbers are up before the beak.
    - Therefore the train robbers will be sure to go down.

    Invalid. Up and Down are used in different senses, therefore an ambiguity is committed.

    I checked invalid because going down has nothing to do with the robbers being sure to go down. They might go down without them even realizing it. Thus the statement is invalid.

    15/15 on test 1.
    15/15 on test 2.

    yay

    On test 2 there was a few wordings that was very odd, so I counted on that to be on purpose.

    I just concluded that admitting to murder isn't the same as doing it.
