Question and answer
Construct a deductive argument that is valid but not sound. Then, construct a valid deductive argument that is sound. Be sure to put the argument in premise-conclusion form.
A sound argument must be valid and it must have true premises. It also must not be circular (an argument is circular if the premises assume the truth of the conclusion). [ This means that the easiest way to construct a valid but not sound argument is to use false premises. So a deductive argument that is valid but not sound would be: Premise 1: All donkeys are invertebrates. ]
