1.5 The logic of the argument
It is important to identify that the argument is logical in the way it is structured. The claims made within it should be supported by the evidence provided. Look at the author’s reasoning and consider whether or not it makes sense. Ask yourself whether it is valid.
When looking at the validity of the argument it helps to develop a questioning and critical approach. Look at the conclusions drawn. Are they supported adequately by the claims made throughout the argument?
