Exercise 4.2 Model Answer

Create an argument map of the reasoning in this passage:

Again, a simple bit of homework reveals that the tyres were not of the traditional, inflated rubber kind. The purpose-built LRV tyres were actually made from a mesh of zinc-coated piano wire, to which titanium treads were riveted in a chevron pattern. [8.5]

Note that this passage was the basis of Exercise 1.6, where the task was to map all the simple arguments contained in the passage.  Here, the exercise is to produce a single map of the complex reasoning.
