Postby jongbargas » Sun Jul 17, 2011 1:26 am

1. The author criticizes the psychologist claim by...

My guess is that it is a flaw.

Please help, thanks!

You're describing the author's method of reasoning here. he's attacking the psychologist's presumably flawed argument. That doesn't mean that the answer choice will be a flawed method of reasoning though.

Pretty sure its 'Method of Reasoning.' What was the answer to the question?

The tip-off is "by," which suggests how the author mistakenly argues. Or basically, his method of argument.

The author didn't necessarily "mistakenly" argue anything. He could have made a valid argument.

This is a pure method of reasoning question. The answer will describe the argument, flawed or otherwise.

And this is why I hate just getting like 6 words of the question.
