For each of the following arguments, explain whether correct reasoning is used.

a.) Hanoch is rich because he doesn't pay taxes and he doesn't pay taxes because he is rich.
b.) All mammals have a backbone and species A has a backbone, so it must be a mammal.
c.) All mammals are warm blooded and species A is a mammal so species A is warm blooded.
d.) Peter said an election will be called this spring, but he is a liar so there will be no election.
