4.2 What are the reasons assignment?

I need support with this English question so I can learn better.

Rewrite the following arguments listing the reason(s) first and the conclusion last.

Each line should be a single statement written as a complete sentence.

Feel free to modify the sentences as you deem necessary, without changing their basic meaning. (after all you want to be restating this argument, not writing a new one!)

Label the Reason(s) R¹, R², R³, etc. and the conclusion C.

Leave out any indicator words and any fluff (i.e., sentences which are neither the conclusion nor a reason).

EXAMPLE:

Cats with long hair shed all over the house so you should not get a long-haired cat. I have heard that they also have lots of fleas.

R¹: Long-haired cats shed all over the house

R²: Long-haired cats have a lot of fleas

C: You should not get a long haired cat
