@Masada, which question 8 are you referring to? The 'view' button is directing me to a video introduction to the course, and there are no questions I'm seeing. If you could let me know so that I can assist you, that'd be great. Thanks!

@Masada, happy to help!

In example #8, there is a jump in logic from noting that the garden is full of tall tulips to concluding that the garden is full of tall plants. In other words, tall tulips do not necessarily equal tall plants, and we are incorrect to assume that they do. It may be the case that even the tallest of tulips is considered a small plant relative to the size of most other plants. Therefore, this is flawed logic.

Does that make sense? Please let us know if you have any other questions!
