Argument 1: The argument has a false premise, but follows good logic.
Argument 2: The argument has true premises, but follows poor logic, leading to a false conclusion.
Argument 3: The argument has either a false premise or follows poor logic, but leads to a true conclusion.
Argument 4: The argument is based on true premises and follows good logic leading to a true conclusion.
Then, reorder your arguments and post them to the discussion board. Next, analyze the arguments of two other students. Identify whether or not the premises and conclusion are true, and whether the arguments follow good or poor logic. Explain how you were able to assess the quality of the logic.
