Rewrite the following arguments to put them in the form of reasoning by perfect analogy. Insert a missing analogical premise if one is needed.
a. Love is like a garden and if you do not tend a garden every day the flowers will die. Love needs tending too.
b. I will not like that movie. It is just like that other one we saw last week, and I hated it.
c. Cinnamon is just like mace, and the mace tasted good in the cake, so the cake too will taste good with cinnamon.
d. The stock market is behaving just like it did 2 years ago, and back then we had a very deep recession, so another recession is on the way.
e. Crime rates are about to drop. That is what happened in Europe when the economy boomed, and our economy is booming too.
f. The samples taken from the patient’s wound were infected, so the wound is now badly infected.
g. The Sun has risen every day for nearly 6 billion years. Tomorrow will be no different. So, the Sun will rise tomorrow too.
h. We repeated the tests 300 times and got the same results, so alcohol does kill germs on skin.
i. Demolishing vacant buildings is like pulling out weeds. It increases the value of the surrounding buildings.
Look in the letters to the editor in a newspaper or magazine. Find three letters in which the author argues by analogy. Identify the analogues, and assess whether the analogical premise is acceptable.
