# logic-test

At the request of Prof. Stephen Schwartz of Ithaca College I have created this English version of the logic test. Prof. Schwartz contributed most parts of the translation. Feel free to explore the rest of this site. Sorry the rest is only in German.

Consider which of the "conclusions" (C) follow from the given "premises" (P) and which do not.

This test is completly anonymous, no data will be saved. Your answers will be checked and you will receive your result when you click the submit button.

Please try the first round quickly without any help. The goal is to demonstrate that you can easily get confused without some help from a good calculus, unless you are very experienced. This test is based on a paper-version from J.-M. von Petzinger which he used in his logic-tutorials.
