Question

Which statement in the excerpt is an example of fallacious reasoning?

". . . a young married woman from New Jersey" because her age, origin, and marital status are irrelevant.

"The anti-suffragists can gather more statistics than any other person I ever saw," because the audience can verify the statement.

". . . she brought all her arguments out in pairs and backed them up by statistics," because it makes light of the young woman's activity.

"Well they don't but some liars figure," because it calls the woman the name "liar" without showing that her statistics are lies.
