For the algebra test a person would have to be mentally skilled in that area of expertise, as for the social studies test a person could have a higher percentage of getting a higher total grade.

I'll allow PRO to post the first argument.

Clarification would also be helpful. As my opponent is PRO in the resolution 'The Algebra Tests are easier than the Social Studies Tests,' it would seem that he is of the opinion that social studies tests are harder.

However, in his opening argument he states:

1. For the algebra test a person would have to be mentally skilled in that area of expertise
2. as for the social studies test a person could have a higher percentage of getting a higher total grade.

These two claims seem to support my side of the resolution.

I'm finding defending either side of the resolution, so if PRO misworded the resolution and actually plans to defend algebra as harder, I'll make no quarrel of it. Likewise, if he simply phrased his opening arguments in a confusing way and does believe social studies is harder, I'm fine with him switching sides. I'd just like to be sure which side I'm defending before I start.

CON wins due to multiple forfeits, though he probably would have won anyways.

1. I can't accept this because I dont match the Instigator's age and/or rank criteria.

2. There are a lot of algebra test, and a lot of Social Studies Tests. You need to be more specific.

The resolution does not seem to scan properly.

I would have taken this one, but it appears that my qualifications are not suitable... Too bad, as I have top marks in social studies and am a major history fan.
