Answer to Question #73352 in Other Philosophy for Al

Question #73352
Analogical argument
Your older brother was an athlete, a bright student, a nonconformist, and he was very selfdisciplined.
You have developed these same traits. Since he chose not to smoke cigarettes,
cigars, or a pipe; use snuff; or chew tobacco, you should choose the same course of action.
Premise 1 is:
You and your brother are alike in the following respects: athletes, bright students,
nonconformists, and very selfdisciplined.
Premise 2 is:
Your brother chose not to smoke cigarettes, cigars, or a pipe; use snuff; or chew tobacco.
The conclusion is:
You should choose the same course of action.

Suppose the younger brother said the following: "My older brother drinks beer even though you are against it. So, I should be able to drink, too." Which strategy of evaluation does this
represent?

Possible answers:
A. Pointing out disanalogies between the things being compared.

B. Constructing a counteranalogy.

C. Determining an unintended consequence of the analogy.
