Hypothetical syllogism

Major premise  – If i eat Mcdonalds everyday, i will be obese.

         I dont eat Mcdonalds everyday

conclusion –  Therefore i am not obese.

Terms : Mcodnalds –  middle term

To eat everyday – predicate term

Obesity – subject term

Examination: This conclusion is invalid because it is possible that i could eat other unhealthy, processed food, other than mcdonalds that could also put me at risk of obesity.
