  • What is Denying the antecedent?

  • Denying the antecedent is a logical fallacy  that occurs when, from a conditional statement,  

  • one incorrectly infers that if the antecedent  (the "if" part) is false, then the consequent  

  • (the "then" part) must also be false. This form  of reasoning is flawed because the consequent can  

  • still be true even if the antecedent is false. Everyday example:

  • Someone said "If I study hard, I will  pass the exam. I didn't study hard,  

  • so I will not pass the exam." This reasoning is fallacious  

  • because there are other ways to pass the exam  besides studying hard, such as already knowing  

  • the material or making educated guesses. The absence of studying doesn't necessarily  

  • guarantee a failure; it just negates  one specific path to success

  • This example demonstrates the error  in concluding that the failure of the  

  • condition (studying hard) automatically leads to  the failure of the outcome (passing the exam).
