  • Affirming a Disjunct is a logical  fallacy that occurs in a situation  

  • where there are two possibilities (aka disjuncts),  

  • and the confirmation of one is  incorrectly taken to deny the other.

  • This fallacy follows the format: "A  or B is true; A is true; therefore,  

  • B is not true." It's a fallacy because  both A and B could be true simultaneously.

  • Everyday example:

  • A person said, "It's raining outside, so either  I take an umbrella or I will definitely get wet;  

  • since I'm taking an umbrella, it's  impossible for me to get wet."

  • This statement implies a false dichotomyeither taking an umbrella or getting wet,  

  • suggesting these outcomes are mutually exclusive.

  • However, this is an oversimplificationIn reality, taking an umbrella doesn't  

  • inherently prevent the possibility of getting wet,  

  • as other factors like wind could  still lead to one getting wet.
