ive been having trouble with answering the questions accurately. the method that i am using is identifying the premises and the conclusions, then trying to prephrase a possible flaw in the reasoning and then match up my prephrase with one of the answer choices that are most similar to what i had prephrased. Also while reading the stimulus i try to determine which kind of error that it might be so that I would be able to narrow down my answer choices.

EX, questions 35, 36. I tried to prephrase with these questions and found the answer choices that matched up most closely and they turned out to be wrong and that has been happening with many of the questions that I have been trying to do.

Hi, Gurwinder,

Could you please specify which book you are using? The Lesson 7 Flaw in the Reasoning homework questions only go up to problem 30 (pages 7-70 to 7-79). In your reply, could you please choose one of these questions and step me through your thought process in detail? This way, I can better respond to you personally, instead of providing a general response.

Thank you very much!
