Steven is selling a used car that is 10 years old. He found a way to set the odometer back 50,000 miles, making his car appear more valuable than it actually is. A potential buyer looks at the car and is amazed at the low mileage. He asks Steven if anyone has tampered with the odometer. Steven replies, "Hey, that would be illegal. No one wants to get caught doing something illegal." What type of misleading statement did Steven make in his reply?

    The answer is false implication.

    Explanation:

    False implication is a logical fallacy that consists in stating something that is true, however implying something else is also true (while it isn't). In this example, Steven says something most people would accept as true, and in doing so he is falsely implying that he didn't manipulate the odometer.
