Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A deductive argument or deductive reasoning is an argument or reasoning in which the truth of (all) the premises guarantees the truth of the conclusion. Here's an example: 1. If Whaley the Wale nurses her young with milk, than Whaley the Wale is a mammal. 2. Whaley the Wale does nurse her young with milk. So, 3. Whaley the Wale is a mammal. This simple example of a deductive argument is called Modus Ponens.
