The Counter Argument
A counter argument is an argument, with factual evidence or other kinds of support, that challenges either your thesis or a major argument for it.
By identifying counterarguments to your ideas, and seeing whether you can respond to them adequately, you test the persuasiveness of the ideas.
You state the opposing argument or arguments, and you show that they don't succeed in refuting your own arguments.
Was Paul' s suicide preventable? Why or Why not?
Find two example from the text to support your claim.
