Must be True/Conclusion/Inference
Name the Question type:
The arguement above would be most strengthened if which one of the following were true?

The argument is based on which one of the following assumptions?
Strengthen/Premise
Name the Question type:
Which one of the following statments, if true, most seriously undermines the argument?

Which one of the following, if true, would cast the most doubt on the conclusion?
Weaken/Undermine
Name the Question type:
The argument employs which one of the following argumentative strategies?

Which one of the following most accurately descibes a flaw in the reasoning above?
Method of reasoning
Name the Question type:

Resolve/Explain
Must Be True/Most Supported

Assumption
