Logical Reasoning

  1. He greatest chance for the existence of extraterrestrial life is on a planet beyond our solar system. This is because the Milky Way galaxy alone contains 100 billion other suns, many of which could be accompanied by planets similar enough to make them suitable abodes of life. The argument above assumes which of following?

    1. living creatures on another planet would probably have the same appearance as those on earth

    2. life cannot exist on other planets in solar system

    3. if the appropriate physical conditions exist, life is an inevitable consequence

    4. more than one of the suns in the galaxy is accompanied by an earth like planet

    5. it is likely that life on another plane would require conditions similar to those on earth
