1. BEFORE you start the quiz, read the dialogue below and be ready to answer a relevance question about it.

1 Riley: There is no way you can convince me that it was ever a good idea to vote for Kwame Kilpatrick in 2001. He should never have been mayor!
2 Huey: Really? Not even the first time? At the time we did not know what he was going to do. We did not know he was going to have an affair with one of his chief staff members and use the city police to keep it quiet. There was also no way we possibly could have known about all the corruption allegations that were going to occur during the course of his time in office. During the race he looked like a real change from the usual recycled businessmen and lawyers that usually run for the job. You can’t blame people for wanting something different in their leaders, especially in Detroit.
3 Riley: No, no no. Look. None of that matters. Monica Conyers was the only one on City Council to vote no to asking him to resign and she was crooked too. They’re all in it together. The corruption in this city means you can’t trust anybody.
4 Huey: All that may be true, but at the time we did not know about Monica Conyers and the Synagro investigation. That didn’t come to light until 2009. The resignation vote was in 2008. None of that is relevant to the question of whether or not it made sense to vote for Kilpatrick in 2001.

2. BEFORE you start the quiz, put this argument in standard form on your own and try to figure out what famous form of argument it exhibits.

Someone should stay home if she's really sick. Jeanine is sick like that, so she should not be here today.
