  3. The argument is not strong...the conclusion is a fallacy - illogical. The argument is 'wrong'. As MsSue said, Tom could just as well be one of the "few" who do not use heroin.

  5. The book in this case is incorrect.... I would really suggest that you take this question to your teacher and explain that the statements are illogical....therefore, they can not be strong. Ask the teacher what the book is asking for. I would definitely be curious to know.
