Select the answer choice that correctly completes the following:
Some human beings are mortal.
Plato is a human being.

Correct! Wrong!

Perhaps Plato will die. A significant premise in the first statement is that some people are mortal, which establishes a general concept that is assumed to be true. A minor predicate in the second phrase establishes that a particular individual is a human being. However, the test-taker must understand that the primary premise is not an immutable fact before drawing a judgment. By claiming that Plato (a human person) falls within the principle stated in the major premise and that this conclusion is constrained by the same restriction as the major premise, Answer B effectively ties the major and minor premises together.

Select the answer choice that correctly provides the missing premise: _____________.
Darlene is an automobile driver who breached the duty of care.

Correct! Wrong!

All motorists who fail to exercise the proper level of care are being negligent. The main premise must demonstrate a link between negligent driving and vehicle drivers who violate the duty of care in order to support the finding that Darlene was at fault.

As a result, etiquette guidelines vary depending on where a person resides.

Correct! Wrong!

The initial adverb "therefore" is set off with a comma to make the phrase simpler to read or to indicate a pause. The subject and verb in the original sentence do not agree. "Differ" fits with "rules," a plural topic.
