2.) I should get an ‘A’ in this class because I got ‘A’s in all my previous English classes.
(a)slippery slope (b)false analogy (c)ad baculum (d)either/or reasoning
3.) I should get an ‘A’ in this class because I have improved my writing skills.
(a)bandwagon fallacy (b)slippery slope (c)equivocation (d)appeal to tradition
4.) I should get an ‘A’ in this class because I studied and worked hard on all my essays.
