    Select the correct fallacy in Sarah’s reasoning? (You may select more than one answer)

    Pitfall 1: Conclusions from Small Samples unchecked

    Pitfall 3: Conclusions from Rare Events checked

    Pitfall 4: Poor Survey Methods checked

    Pitfall 5: Assuming a Causal Link checked

    Pitfall 6: Generalization to Individuals

    Sarah is falling for Pitfalls 5 and 6. Just because a statistics can be associated with a trend does not mean causation. There must be concrete evidence to support cause snd effect and even if there were evidence to support cause and effect, extending the result about groups to an individual is not appropriate. You cannot just generslize an outvome without some form of evidence
