Although I find the subject of your other question most interesting, having
not formally studied logic, I am not confident enough in my ability to
clearly distinguish clearly between the 27 different types of
logical fallacy listed.



In short, I am unconvinced that I can provide you with the correct
answers. That being the case, I will not make the attempt.



I trust that my answering your other question is not a requirement for me to get paid for my answer to this one.



Thanks in advance.



Steve
