Calvin: Fire insurance policies are disadvantageous to policyholders. The typical policyholder always pays more in premiums than he or she collects in payments on policies.

  • Questioning the source of Calvin’s factual information
  • Introducing a consideration neglected by Calvin’s argument
  • Showing that Calvin’s argument assumes what it sets out to prove
  • Challenging the truth of the evidence advanced in Calvin’s argument
  • Showing the irrelevance of Calvin’s evidence to the conclusion he draws
