  • Question of the Day

Thomas’s team, the Rays, have gone undefeated this basketball season winning ten out of ten games. They will probably win the state championship game next week, since in the past every team that has gone undefeated the whole season has ended up winning the state championship game.

The arguments reasoning is questionable because it presumes, without giving warrant, that

A. The likelihood that the championship will be won is influenced by the amount of money that team raises for the state
B. Thomas’s team have gone undefeated because they are the best team in the state
C. having gone undefeated the whole season affects the likelihood that the Rays will win the state championship
D. having gone undefeated the whole season affects the likelihood that they will go undefeated next season as well
E. Thomas will play for the Rays team at the state championship game

Answer

CORRECT ANSWER: C
EXPLANATION: Temporal Flaw. What happened in the past does not affect the present or the future.
