And the murder was committed in the hall and Professor Plum was certainly in the hall earlier. 3 An argument is valid if and only if it is impossible that its premises be true and its conclusion false. Consider the following questions carefully before responding. In each case give reasons for answering as you do. A When is an argument invalid? B Can a valid argument have a false conclusion? C Can a valid argument have actually true premises but a false conclusion? D Can an argument have true premises and a true conclusion but not be valid?

Given our stock of sentence-letters we can easily represent any such sentence formally. e. e. ’ Having done so, we can abbreviate the first premise to: 1. If P then Q Now, the second premise is exactly the same sentence that we used P to stand for.
