CRITICAL THINKING please help me

posted by .

Consider the following argument. Is the argument inductive, deductive or concatenated? What can you tell me about the validity of the claim? What can you tell me about the cogency of the claim? Explain your reasoning using specific reference to the argument. "I<Clicker 2 is a useful tool in educational settings. Many universities have begun using I<Clicker 2 to capture student response information in the classroom, and 94% of users agree that the product is effective or extremely effective. If you are looking for an exciting way to increase interaction in the classroom, then I<Clicker2 is the product for you.”

    It’s a deductive argument.
    Because all its premises are true (Many universities have begun using I<Clicker 2 to capture student response information in the classroom, and 94% of users agree that the product is effective or extremely effective) then its conclusion must be true also, because the claim asserted by its conclusion already has been stated in its premises.
    Hypothetical syllogism:
    If "I<Clicker 2 is a useful tool in educational settings” then “Many universities have begun using I<Clicker 2 to capture student response information in the classroom, and 94% of users agree that the product is effective or extremely effective.”
    If “Many universities have begun using I<Clicker 2 to capture student response information in the classroom, and 94% of users agree that the product is effective or extremely effective.” Then “If you are looking for an exciting way to increase interaction in the classroom, then I<Clicker2 is the product for you.”
    Therefore "I<Clicker 2 is a useful tool in educational setting,” Then If you are looking for an exciting way to increase interaction in the classroom, then I<Clicker2 is the product for you.”
