1) Men and woman may have different reproductive strategies but

neither can be considered inferior or superior to the other, any more

than a bird’s wings can be considered superior or inferior to a fish’s

fins. What type of argument it is ? (1) Biological (2) Physiological

(3) Analogical (4) Hypothetical(Ans3) (UGC net 2018)

2) Consider the following statement and select the correct code

stating the nature of the argument involved in it : To suppose that

the earth is the only populated world in the infinite space is as

absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet only one grain

will grow. (1) Astronomical (2) Anthropological (3) Deductive (4)

Analogical (Ans4) (UGC net 2016)

3) A man ought no more to value himself for being wiser than a

woman if he owes his advantage to a better education, than he ought

to boast of his courage for beating a man when his hands were tied.”

The above passage is an instance of (A) Deductive argument (B)

Hypothetical argument (C) Analogical argument (D) Factual

argument(AnsC) (UGC net 2014)

4)If a large diamond is cut up into little bits, it will lose its value just

as an army is divided up into small units of soldiers, it loses its

strength.” The argument put above may be called as (A) Analogical

(B) Deductive (C) Statistical (D) Causal(AnsA) (UGC net 2014)

5)Saturn and Mars are planets like the earth. They borrow light from

the Sun and moves around the Sun as the Earth does. So those

planets are inhabited by various orders of creatures as the earth is.

Deductive (B) Astrological (C) Analogical (D) Mathematical

(Ans C) (UGC net2013 )

Type 2

Venn diagram is another stock topic. Venn diagram is a diagram

representing mathematical or logical sets pictorially as circles or

closed curves within an enclosing rectangle (the universal set),

common elements of the sets being represented by intersections of

the circles. A Venn diagram is a diagram that shows all possible

logical relations between a finite collection of different sets. These

diagrams depict elements as points in the plane, and sets as regions

inside closed curves. A Venn diagram consists of multiple

overlapping closed curves, usually circles, each representing a set

1)Venn diagram is a kind of diagram to

(A) represent and assess the validity of elementary inferences of

syllogistic form. (B) represent but not assess the validity of

elementary inferences of syllogistic form. (C) represent and assess

the truth of elementary inferences of syllogistic form. (D) assess but

not represent the truth of elementary inferences of syllogistic form.

(AnsA) (UGC netJune2012 )

2)Venn diagram is a kind of diagram to (A) represent and assess the

truth of elementary inferences with the help of Boolean Algebra of

classes. (B) represent and assess the validity of elementary

inferences with the help of Boolean Algebra of classes. (C)

represent but not assess the validity of elementary inferences with

the help of Boolean Algebra of classes. (D) assess but not represent

the validity of elementary inferences with the help of Boolean

Algebra of classes. (AnsB) ((UGC netJune2011)

3)Which one of the following statements is not correct in the context

of Venn diagram method ? (1) It requires two overlapping circles for

the two premises of a standardform categorical syllogism. (2) It can

be used to represent classes as well as propositions. (3) It is a

method of testing the validity of arguments. (4) It represents both

the premises of a syllogism in one diagram. (AnsA)
