Three Logical Fallacies
The focus of this paper will be to discuss logical errors known as fallacies. If an argument contains a fallacy, then the conclusions generated by the argument may not necessarily lead to the truth. Some fallacies are created unintentionally, but sometimes they can be intentionally created to trap or lure a reader into believing false conclusion. Some unscrupulous writers or speakers use fallacies as a tool to purposely mislead the intended audiences.
