In A Very Potter Musical, (a fan-made musical based on the popular Harry Potter series,) the character Cedric Diggory says that Hufflepuffs (the students of Hogwarts sorted into Hufflepuff house) are particularly good finders (which is to say, good at finding things.)
Hufflepuffs are particularly good finders.
I am a Hufflepuff.
Therefore, I am a particularly good finder.
‘Hufflepuffs’ is the middle term of this syllogism. ‘Particularly good finders’ is the predicate term, and ‘I’ is the subject term. This syllogism follows the pattern of:
If A, then B.
C is B.
Therefore, C is A.
This syllogism is valid, though the premises are not true. Not all Hufflepuffs are particularly good finders. I am actually terrible at finding things. Cedric Diggory’s statement is untrue. It should be: Some, but not all Hufflepuffs are particularly good finders.
