Your WIT, What I Think, are short, reflective e s s a y s. Each WIT is to exhibit your critical analysis skills, your organizational skills for writing, and your creative thinking skills. You will write a 2-3 p a g e reflection for each WIT. Please use MLA formatting (MLA heading, double spaced, and 12 point font size). It is also necessary to cite the text or any source you draw upon as you complete the WIT assignment. For this WIT, you will use the “Analyzing Images” piece on page 155 (ATTACHED BELOW).

- Give examples of these fallacies within the ad; and
- Explain why these examples exhibit fallacious logic.
- Finally, comment on why you think the advertising company relied upon these particular fallacies to sell their product. What was the intended impact?
