Question #1: Identify the conclusion and premises in the argument in this advertisement. Evaluate the argument.
(Note: When you evaluate the argument, use what you learned in Chapters 5 and 6. Is the argument logical, persuasive, and fair? Or, is it flawed? Explain.)
Question #2: What is the objective of this ad? Is the ad effective in meeting its objective? Discuss the strategies, including rhetorical devices and fallacies, if any, that the creators of this ad used to try to convince the reader to accept their conclusion.
(Note: When discussing the strategies in this ad, comment on all aspects. For example, in addition to the argument that is presented, how do the ad’s visual elements reinforce its message? Why did the creators choose the photo, for example, or the font style? What impact do they have on the overall argument being presented?)
