Interpretation(unsupported) vs scope (out of scope)

Postby laxbrah420 » Thu Sep 22, 2011 7:44 pm

Anybody have a good grasp between the difference? Out of scope: "it wasn't discussed, so no comparison can be made"... unsupported: "there is no evidence of this"

seems the same to me.

Unsupported: through a combination of the existing premises you can not logically deduce the conclusion
Out of Scope: the element at hand is neither mentioned in the premises nor conclusion.

This can get you started, I'm sure others will have more input. There's some overlap between these two as well.

By the way, this is mostly with assumption based questions.

Out of scope would be me talking about soccer being hard to play with one leg and mentioning baseball being easier than swimming with one ear.

Unsupported would be 'Yeah and baseball must be hard too!'
