Flaw: A contradicts B, so B is right and A is wrong

Postby naillsat » Fri Jun 01, 2012 1:36 pm

Recently I started noticing a pattern in the flaw questions I've done in LR, all of a sudden I realized this: because A contradicts B, so B is right and A is wrong. An example in my head is an LR question that says A did a testimony about John Edwards' case (fake name, cuz cannot recall the exact name in that question). Edwards was acquitted by the jury, however, A later expressed an opinion that he thinks Edwards was guilty. The conclusion goes: the jury did not believe A's testimony. The explanation could also be that A changed his opinion on Edwards after testimony?

After realizing this, I went thru the Cambridge Flaw type questions and found quite a few questions actually have this flaw pattern. I thought I wanted to share and discuss with TLS fellows about this, if you already know this, please forgive my naivety.
