    I got 14 as well, missing on #3. I wasn't optimistic before trying it seeing as my Philosophy 101 class years ago had a logic segment and I hated it. As long as the questions are read carefully they aren't too bad.

    :D

    15/15. The better question is if someone can identify the fallacy (ie; affirming the consequent, denying the antecedent, reverse accident, etc)

    Reading that #15 was causing some problems ahead time didn't help... as I got #15 wrong.

    15/15

    Once I got to the Duck Barking argument, I realized they were being tricky.

    As an aside, I'm not sure how logical it is to construct arguments and premises that are obviously false :)

    the premises are not important. what matters is if the structure of the argument is valid.

    all dogs speak english

    trees are dogs

    therefore trees speak english.
