. After reviewing pages 454-459, 432-436 of your textbook respond to the following:
l Identify the differences between deductive and inductive arguments.
The difference here is that an inductive argument takes one specific case and uses it to make a general argument that is supposed to apply more broadly.   By contrast, a deductive argument takes one or more known facts or ideas and applies them to the case at hand.
l Additionally, explain how misleading reasoning is used to influence others.
For example, you hear say she say   stuff about you because someone took it the wrong way of what was really said. Some people take things out of context and make it bigger then it really is and just cause confusing.

l Then, select a topic of interest to you and explain how you would come up with a reliable sample for obtaining peoples' opinions.
Music is my topic. Well you have people who like country music and people who like hip-hop or Rnb music. I would try to get people to understand that is alright to like different kind of music and not just settle on what kind of music genre because there is so much you can do with different kinds of music and put things together and make then great.

2. Reference the section "Empirical Generalization," on pages 457 - 458 of your textbook. The key criteria for inductive arguments in establishing viable sample populations are:
l Is the sample known?
l Is the sample sufficient?
l Is the sample representative?
Use Microsoft Word to respond to your problem. Your response should consist of 325 - 500 words.
