This is important part of critical thinking and can be used in day to day life.
If Condition Then Statement.
Condition is called as an antecedent. In our example : “it is raining”
Statement is called as a consequent. In our example : ” I am wet”
If it is raining ,then I am wet.
Logical fallacies are below:
- Affirming the consequent: If I am wet , therefore it is raining.
It is possible that someone throws a glass of water on you & you could be wet.So no need to conclude it is raining.
2. Denying the antecedent : If it it not raining therefore I am not wet.
Again a glass of water on you could prove this one wrong.
