# BLUEPRINT [LR/LG]

### LESSON 8: Assumptions//Sufficient & Necessary//Stable & Unstable Grouping Games

Question | Answer | |||
---|---|---|---|---|

Sufficient Assumptions and proving the conclusion?? | **Sufficient assumptions CAN be stronger than what is required to prove the conclusion | **Sufficient assumptions CANNOT be any weaker than what is required -If this happens then it doesn't guarantee the validity of the argument | ||

What do you do if you need to diagram a sufficient question? | **Diagram the premises/conclusion | **Find the missing assumption | ||

What is the best 3 step way to approach a Sufficient question?? | **1. Locate the conclusion | **2. Locate the premises that support it | **3. Anticipate a logical bridge between the two | |

What is a Necessary Assumption? | **Must be true in order for an argument's conclusion to ever be properly inferred | **Correct answer choices tend to be relatively WEAK -Can be weaker than what is required to prove the conclusion | **Correct answer choice is something that must be true -DOES NOT have to guarantee anything | |

How is an argument rendered invalid w/ necessary assumptions? | **If necessary assumption of argument is denied or taken away | |||

What is a Stable Grouping Game? | **Number of players on each team IS fixed[or defined] | **EX -People separated into two four person committees, one on transport and one on finances | ||

What is an Unstable Grouping Game? | **Number of players on each team NOT fixed[or defined] | **EX -People separated into two committees, one on transport and one on finances | ||

What strategies can you use if you are doing a game that involves two possible options for each player? | **Use Linked Options | **Simplify the contrapositive | **Deduce the "Cannot Be Together" Relationships | |

What are the 3 different varieties of Stable Grouping games?? | ** 1:1 correspondence | **Underbooked | **Overbooked | |

What are some examples of clues that let you know to play the numbers in grouping games? | **Each beer pong team must have at least two members | **At most three ferrets are assigned to kennel 1 | **Exactly twice as many divas sit at table 2 as table 1 | |

What should you NEVER assume with unstable grouping games? | **NEVER assume someone has to be in a group | **You can have an empty group -They have to say there is a minimum for a group to rule out "0" in a group | ||

What is a Sufficient Assumption? | **Guarantees the conclusion of argument is properly inferred -Addition of correct answer choice to premise in the stimulus will guarantee validity of the argument | |||

How do the answer choices for sufficient questions tend to be? | **very STRONG | *Take the form of conditional statements | ||

What 4 grouping relationships do all grouping games rely on? | **Tag-Along | **Must Be Together | **Cannot Be Together | **At Least One |
