Hi @cbear,

Thanks for the question! So we’re looking for the main conclusion here. So to sum up what’s going on here, she says that “I’m going to show you that this quest in irrational.” And then provides a hypothetical, and makes him answer it, and then argues that this shows how he’s being irrational.

Hope this helps! Feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.
