First of all, false cause means when an argument mistakenly try to set up some state of works produces the effect of another state of works. Event A happened, Event B come after Event A, therefore Event A caused Event B. This happens because make a conclusion depends on supposed causal connection which does not exist at all, is not known to exist, or possible does not exist. For an example,

Furthermore, generalisations define drawing a claim  based on a little evidence of sample size, rather than search for statistics which are much more information with the average situation. It take a little sample and judge an idea about that sample and use it to a bigger population, so it actually not work.  For an example, my father reach home and find out cushion pear off and our dog with a guilty face looking in the corner. So whenever our dog with guilty look, so my father will declare to us whenever we leave house, our dog will destroy our things. This possible will be true but my dog didn’t destroy anything after that day. To avoid this happen, we should be more particular that based on observation for several times and not only one time. Have to find the truth, look for evidence with both supporting statement because every story have two sides, the truth frequently lies somewhere else.

Lastly, fallacies are everywhere and it’s important to understand fallacies so we can avoid in any arguments that we make.  Fallacies also provide basis for assessing and critiquing other arguments also.
