(I did not get some answers correct on this categorizing fallacies assignment. It was graded but not with the correct answers. Can someone help me by telling me which type of fallacies the below statements are please so I can understand better. Thank you!)

1.My friend, who goes to college in another state, said girls from that sorority are mean. That girl we just met, Tracy, is from the same sorority, so I don’t trust her.

2.On a radio ad: “Have you been fatigued, irritable, moody? If these symptoms are ignored, you might become depressed or even suicidal! Ward off the blues by taking a pill proven to cheer you up. Millions of people have, and they’re glad they did!”

3.From one mom to another: “I can’t believe Shelia lets her kids watch that garbage! I always knew she wasn’t very strict. Now our kids will be over there watching that junk, too!”

4.Stomachache or not, how could you not eat your dinner after I spent all that time making it!

5.From a conspiracy theorist: “Come on, everyone knows that the government has lied to us in the past. This case isn’t any different.”

6.You’re going out with Carron? Well, she’s a nice person, but I hear her last relationship was a wreck! I’d be careful if I were you.

7.I don’t care if she is the top psychiatrist in the state! Her theory on sibling rivalry is extreme. How can we believe anything she says if she subscribes to theories of that nature?

8.It’s disgraceful that a member of the Elks Lodge would go out to fast food restaurants every night. The Elks believe in family values, including home-cooked meals.
