You can play the “Devil’s advocate.”) Your argument should be either deductive, valid, and sound, OR inductive, strong, and cogent (see Hurley 1.4). Your argument must include either a premise or a conclusion indicator (see Hurley 1.1), and it must also include a deductive or an inductive indicator (see Hurley 1.3). (15% of essay score)
