Suppose that the fact that an event A occurs before event B is used to conclude that A caused B. What is this an example​ of? Explain your reasoning.

A.

A​ well-reasoned, logical argument. The premise​ "A came before​ B" fully supports the conclusion​ "A caused​ B."

B.

A​ well-reasoned, logical argument. The premise​ "A caused​ B" fully supports the conclusion​ "A came before​ B."

C.

An argument that uses the fallacy of false cause. The fact that one event came before another event is not evidence that the first event is caused by the second event.

D.

Hasty generalization. The assumption is that because A came before B a few​ times, A must be caused by B. This is not necessarily the case.

E.

Hasty generalization. The assumption is that because A came before B a few​ times, A must cause B. This is not necessarily the case.

F.

An argument that uses the fallacy of false cause. The fact that one event came before another event is not evidence that the first event caused the second event.

Here, option (F) is the best option

F.

An argument that uses the fallacy of false cause. The fact that one event came before another event is not evidence that the first event caused the second event.

Because, when an event occured before another event then its not necessary that the two events may be related with each other Or may not be related with one anther in any way (i.e. the two events may be independent)

For example: A cow ran on the road in california at 6:AM in december 12, 1934. (The first event (A))

The road accident occured in Australia on May 24, 2015. (The second event (B))

Clearly, the first event (A) occured before event (B), but event A is not the cause for event B.
