This one has been killing me for a while. I felt the book was unclear and it’s been driving me crazy to be lacking this principle. Below are the questions I have regarding overvaluing opinions:
According to the book,” overvalues an opinion is when the author makes an assumption that something is true because someone said so.”
1) By “someone”, you meant someone ELSE right? As in a 2nd speaker; another opinion right?
There are stimulus where the author is the only voice and he makes a conclusion based on his own assumption, no other opinion. Will that count as overvaluing opinion also?
The book only has two examples, they both involved a 2nd speaker making an opinion.
This exam really makes you overthink
