Directions: By using a diagram, show if your friend Cheryls conclusion is deducible from what she says.Your friend Cheryl is working on a group lab project with Judy, Bill, Sam, and Nancy. Over lunch she relates the following story:
The group is never going to finish the project because the guys do not like each other. Bill just ended a relationship with Judy whom he had dated since high school. Shes a pig because she still likes him. As a matter of fact, Bill went to high school with the other girl also, but she never did like whom he dated and never really liked him either. So, each person doesnt like somebody, and whenever that happens, as you know, people cant work together. So were not going to finish.
