### June 2007 free preptest lr section #23 Morally right

I have a quick question about this, is the conclusion for this question considered a conditional statement?

Sure is!

This is a a classic example of a sufficient assumption question with conditional premises and a conditional conclusion.

While a lot of conditionals will have a clear indicator like "if" or "unless" or "always", somethings just a simple statement with an 'is' or 'are' can be thought of as a conditional too! Pizza is tasty could be diagrammed pizza --> tasty. There are a ton of sentences that could be diagrammed as conditionals if we really tried, but it's not always useful. Here, it's definitely useful, since the premises are both conditionals.
