Can someone check these answers for me?

I have to identify which examples are vague and ambuiguity.

Areas that were vague was the following :
“For instance, in 1998, medical expenses due to obesity accounted for 9.1 percent of total U.S. medical expenditures and may have been as high as $78.5 billion.”
“That's a lot of cash, but the kicker is that approximately half of these costs were paid by Medicaid and Medicare—in other words, by taxpayers.”

An area was ambiguous is “In other words, by not eating right your height could even fall short!”

I viewed several sites on fallacies and rhectorical devices. Just need someone to correct
