There's a cute little logic test here...

I went back and forth on one question, then finally clicked on the wrong answer.

Except maybe it wasn't incorrect. This guy below convinced me our answer was right, so I'm going to say I aced it.

 Public_Domain CKA Uber Posts: 20852 Posted: Sat Dec 29, 2012 3:42 pm   My comment wasn't supposed to be taken as rude or hostile or even sarcastic.It was just a comment.Perhaps the "tragically" part gave the illusion of a snark response?
 Brenda CKA Uber Posts: 51388 Posted: Sat Dec 29, 2012 3:43 pm   Ya think??
 Public_Domain CKA Uber Posts: 20852 Posted: Sat Dec 29, 2012 3:46 pm   Then I'm sorry.
 Tyler_1 CKA Uber Posts: 30301 Posted: Sat Dec 29, 2012 4:10 pm   I am sorry that because I got such high marks, everyone else is afraid to take the test. Or else they think it's a test for dummies. It could also have been a fluke, but I did not cheat. Wait, I bet you guys did take it and all got perfect scores and just don't want me to feel bad. That's sweet. Oh and Mr. D, next time say Tragically Hip, that usually works best for me.
 Psudo CKA Elite Posts: 3532 Posted: Sun Dec 30, 2012 10:46 am   I missed one question in the first test, so 93%. In the second, I missed 2 questions, so 87%.SPOILERSThe test instructions explicitly says "deductively valid," which is why the water question is invalid. It is inductively valid (in fact, "past observation predicts future observation" is a textbook definition of induction), but that's not what the test is about.## The Questions I Missed: ##Test 1, Question 8 -- The assumption said "could" and the conclusion said "should" and I read them as the same word. I should've worn my reading glasses.Test 2, Question 2 -- I didn't distinguish between "no proven need to" and "must not." Sloppy reasoning on my part.Test 2, Question 10 -- I failed to make the distinction between "procreation happens" and "creatures are motivated to procreate." My bad.END OF SPOILERS.
