Identify the flaw in the argument: “Every time I play darts, I hit the same spot on the board. Thus, I am good at darts.”
This is an equivocation fallacy. One version of the equivocation fallacy occurs when you treat two distinct concepts as though they are the same. Precision (hitting the same spot) is certainly related to accuracy (being good at darts), but they are distinct. So, it is not okay for an author to treat a premise about precision as though it proves a conclusion about accuracy.
