So the data are social behaviour assessments of five groups of juvenile delinquents, with group 1 placed on probation without any special treatment. (A high score indicates better social behaviour.)

Question: Evaluate the following four arguments.

Argument 1.
The average model weighs 23% less than the average woman 1. Maintaining a weight that is 15% below your expected body weight fits the criterion for anorexia 2, so most models, according to medical standards, fit into the category of being anorexic 3.

Argument 2.
Marijuana may lead to amotivational syndrome 1. This is when a person loses concern about future events, lacks ambition, has diminished physical activity, and neglects his or herself 2. People with amotivational syndrome frequently turn to drugs in a search to find some meaning in life, which could explain why marijuana use is common among people with amotivational syndrome 3.

Argument 3.
Schizophrenics all come from families with a history of psychotic disorder 1, and Jones’s family has such a history 2, therefore Jones will exhibit schizophrenia 3.

Argument 4.
It is obvious that lack of exercise has a major role to play in child obesity 1. Scientists blame the television for becoming a substitute for outdoor sports 2, and therefore causing the plague of obesity 3.

Answer: There are several problems with the premises of this argument ( 1 and 2 ) which consequently result in a debatable conclusion....
