Abstract: We investigated the hypothesis that there are three levels of performance associated with conditional reasoning: (1) Unsophisticated reasoners solve a modus tollens by accepting the invited inferences, treating the conditional as if it were a biconditional. (2) Reasoners of an intermediate level can resist the invited inferences, but cannot find the line of reasoning needed to endorse modus tollens. (3) Sophisticated reasoners do not draw the invited inferences either, but they do master the strategy to solve a modus tollens.
