The Doctor (graded)
“Because doctors are well compensated for their services, do you think that people who choose to donate their organs should be compensated, as well? Both do good work toward improving the health of the population, and this would solve the problem of too few organs available for transplantation.”
Do you agree with the argument? Why, or why not?
The Lawyer (graded)
The cause of Mr. Johnson’s death is rat poison.
Mrs. Johnson was seen buying rat poison just 3 days before the death of Mr. Johnson.
(?) Mrs. Johnson killed Mr. Johnson.
If you were a prosecutor, how would you present this argument in court? If you were a defense lawyer, how could you counter the prosecution’s argument?
