Steven is selling a used car that is 10 years old. He found a way to set the odometer back 50,000 miles, making his car appear more valuable than it actually is. A potential buyer looks at the car and is amazed at the low mileage. He asks Steven if anyone has tampered with the odometer. Steven replies, "Hey, that would be illegal. No one wants to get caught doing something illegal." What type of misleading statement did Steven make in his reply?

Answers

The answer is false implication.

Explanation:

False implication is a logical fallacy that consists in stating something that is true, however implying something else is also true (while it isn't).

PLEASE HELP ME????? Match the approximate percentage of the world's water to where it is stored. A. Liquid, salt water 1 percent B. Frozen water 2 percent C. Liquid, fresh water 97 percent

Answers

Answer:

A. Liquid, salt water 97%

B. Frozen water 2 %

C. Liquid, fresh water 1%

Explanation:

Seen from space, the images of our planet show that the Earth is blue, since 70% of its surface is covered by water and only the remaining 30% corresponds to the mainland.

However, of this seventy percent of water, 97% of it corresponds to the water found in the oceans, so it is liquid salty water. The remaining three percent is divided into frozen waters, which corresponds to 2% and the water available for human consumption and the ecosystems that inhabit the planet is 1%.

Salt water 97%
fresh water 1%
frozen 2%
