Please complete all four parts of this assignment (A, B, C, and D). Where you are required to answer in writing, please use complete sentences and/or paragraphs, and be as clear, coherent, and accurate as possible.
Your summaries should provide enough detail to allow someone who has not read the passages to have a clear and accurate understanding of the arguments you are summarizing. Further, the justifications used to support your evaluations of the arguments should be sufficiently detailed to demonstrate the accuracy of your evaluation to someone who has not taken PHIL 252. Always write as if your audience is intelligent but uninformed.
Part A (10%)
Put the following argument in standard form. Identify the form of the argument; evaluate whether the premises are true or false; and then decide if it is valid, and explain why or why not.
If you want to live a better life, then you should spend time in nature. But, you have to work all the time, so you can’t spend time in nature. Therefore, you shouldn’t work all the time.
Part B
Question 1 (10%)
Test the following argument for validity using a Venn diagram. Be sure to label your diagram and indicate whether the syllogism is valid or not.
No S are P
Some S are M
Therefore, Some M are P
Question 2 (15%)
Supply the missing premise or conclusion of the following enthymeme in such a way that the resulting syllogisms are valid. Write the syllogisms in standard form, and test them for validity using Venn diagrams. Be sure to indicate how you are abbreviating the terms involved, label your diagrams clearly, and explain whether the syllogisms are valid or not.
No fruits are sour. Therefore, no pineapples are sour.
Part C
In paragraph form, summarize each of the following passages, and identify and explain the fallacies they demonstrate. Your paragraph should demonstrate your understanding of how to identify and evaluate arguments according to your learning in Units 1–5, concentrating on Unit 5 (identifying argument forms for validity and soundness, identifying and explaining fallacies, etc.).
Note: The passages might contain more than one fallacy.
Question 1 (20%)
Higher salaries for nurses means better care for patients, and thus longer life spans for every Canadian. The Association of Nurse Employment released their member surveys saying that a significant number of nurses agree that they would give better care if their salaries were higher.
Nurses with high salaries will retire early because they have more money. So, we should prepare for a mass retirement by recruiting a million nurses by next year, otherwise life expectancy in Canada will decline.
Question 2 (20%)
Referral process impeding individual liberty
Why do I have to go to my family physician to determine whether or not I need to see a specialist? I pay for the healthcare system just like everyone else, so I should be able to see whatever doctor I want, when I want.
Family physicians are only experts in general medicine, not the specialties they refer me to. How could they know which specialist I need to see? My friend Larry’s family physician didn’t refer him to a cardiologist before his heart attack, and he died. This referral system is costing lives.
I think the family physicians are just lining their pockets with additional appointments for referrals. I think we all know what kind of money they make.
Part D (25%)
Write a short critical essay (800 words) that analyses and evaluates the extended passage below, “Photo Radar Just Lining City Council’s Pockets.” Your essay should demonstrate your understanding of how to identify and evaluate arguments according to your learning in Units 1–5, concentrating on Unit 5 (identifying argument forms for validity and soundness, identifying and explaining fallacies, etc.).
Photo Radar Just Lining City Council’s Pockets
City council needs to get rid of photo radar right now! It is a mere cash grab set up to inflate their budgets and punish those of us who follow the rules 99% of the time. If they do not remove the photo radar from my street, I will start an online campaign that shows how useless these speed traps are. What is the purpose of city council if not to serve the constituents? I believe my interests are not being served.
Firstly, photo radar doesn’t even catch the person while they are speeding, so nothing is being stopped. In other words, if no one was speeding, then we would know with certainty that photo radar works. But people keep speeding. This is because photo radar is merely a passive way of punishing speeders: The only way to truly deter is to catch them in the act.
Secondly, what do they need so much extra money for? We all know that the more they bring in, the more they will spend anyway. So, obviously they will just add more and more photo radar since they depend on the income from photo radar now. Look at all the money they wasted building that soccer facility—I don’t even play soccer!
My cousin has been in road construction for 30 years, and he says that photo radar doesn’t deter people from speeding anyway. He has seen it time and again on the job. He is building the road and they set up photo radar where no one can see it, so how will they know when to slow down???
I have received three photo radar tickets this month for going only two kilometers over the limit on my street. This is beyond unfair. This is taking money away from my children and their financial security. Does city council want my children to starve?

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
