Identify the flaw in the argument: “Many artists are only interested in fame. So, Picasso, who was an artist, was probably only interested in fame.”

Answer

This is a logical force flaw.  “Many” is a weak logical force term.  It works just like “some.”  But “probably” is a moderate term.  Remember, it’s never okay to use a weak premise to support a stronger conclusion.
