Unit-8 Argumentative Composition-2

In this unit we shall illustrate the different methods of building up an argument logically, and also point out the pitfalls in an argument.

Passage 2

A person commits a crime because he is basically insecure, because he hated his stepmother at nine, or because his sister needs a surgical operation. A policeman loots a store because his salary is too low. A city official accepts a bribe because he cannot resist the offer. Members of minority groups, racial or otherwise, commit crimes because they can't get a job, or are unacceptable to the people living around them. We find a truckload of excuses to absolve the individual from responsibility of his actions.

Question: Read the passage carefully and say whether the reasoning is inductive or deductive. Find out the topic sentence in this passage.
