Identify the subject in the following sentence: "On her way to the store, Mara saw her friends walking home from school."
The subject is Mara, because she is the one seeing her friends. Her friends are not the subject of the sentence because the sentence also is complete when her friends' action, "walking home from school," is absent. See: "On her way to the store, Mara saw her friends."
Explain 3 rhetorical fallacies and provide examples.
Red Herring - a distraction from the core of the argument, focusing on issues not related to the topic EX: Gas is becoming an expensive and inefficient means of fuel, but how will workers in that industry earn a living?
