3. Identify at least one informal fallacy or cognitive bias made by Crito or even by Socrates. Explain why it is a fallacy or bias.

4. Socrates says that “One must neither repay an injustice nor cause harm to another man, no matter what one suffers because of him” (49c-d). Do you agree or disagree with him? Why?
