Fallacies or false beliefs are often used in writing. There are two main types, which are deductive and inductive fallacies. An example of a deductive fallacy would be to assume that 3 members of a household did not eat the pie that was left to cool, so the fourth member must have been the culprit. Something else may have been true in this case, such as someone visited the home and ate it, or the family dog may have eaten it, so deduction is a fallacy in this case.
