5. The inference "A mouse is an animal. Therefore, a large mouse is a large animal" commits which one of the following fallacies?

  • Option : C
  • Explanation : The term 'mouse' has been explained/ described as an 'animal' and the second proposition again uses the same term with the same explanation/description which doesn't help the argument. This is a fallacy of equivocation or using an ambiguous term in more than one sense, thus, making the argument misleading.
    Straw man fallacy is substituting a person's actual position or argument with a distorted, exaggerated, or misrepresented version of the position or the argument; slippery slope fallacy occurs when a relatively insignificant first event is suggested to lead to a more significant event, which in tum leads to a more significant event, and so on, until some ultimate, significant event is reached, where the connection of each event is not only unwarranted but with each step it becomes more and more improbable; fallacy of composition is inferring that something is true of the whole from the fact that it is true of some part of the whole.
