# If all Bloops are Razzies and all Razzies are Lazzies, then all Bloops are definitely Lazzies?

True or False.

I think True, my cнιcκ thinks false!

• It's true.

This is one of the elementary syllogisms in formal logic:

All A are B. All B are C. Therefore, all A are C.

It's easier to think about if you use a concrete example.

Let Bloops = mallards.

Let Razzies = ducks.

Let Lazzies = birds.

All mallards are ducks (true) and all ducks are birds (true), so all mallards are birds (has to be true if the first two statements are true).

(Note that the "all"s are necessary in the first two parts in order for the conclusion to be true.

Without the "all"s, you can say something like: "Bulldogs are dogs. Some dogs are poodles. Therefore, bulldogs are poodles." Obviously, this is false.)

But don't be hard on your cнιcκ for getting it wrong. Poultry are not very good at this kind of puzzle.

• Bloop Definition

• If All Bloops Are Razzies

• I think false, just because all bloops are razzies doesn t mean that all the bloops are lazzies, what if there is more razzies than there are bloops? that means that some of the razzies are bloops, some are razzies, therefore not all are lazzies despite all razzies being lazzies.

• Shore, yer right on the button.

Reverse it, Lazzies are Razzies, Razzies are Bloops, so Razzies are Bloops and Lazzies also.

Yer cнιcκ is confused becuz she been listening to you FAR too long.

• It doesn't really seem fair no matter how you put it because the answer is based on whatever the person asking it thinks it is because the mallards are ducks and ducks are birds way works but what if it was all cats are animals and all dogs are animals so all cats are dogs that doesn't make sense so again it's whatever the person asking it wants it to be

• I saw this on an IQ test (this one www.mbti123.com) and could not think of one way to prove that it would be anything other than "true".... but I still answered false, assuming there must be something I'm missing! If there's one thing I do know, it's that I don't know everything.

But I guess now I know that one!
