    Re: need to find the premise and conclusion

    Do you not know what "premise" and "conclusion" mean? I would think that would have been the first thing you would look up! There conclusion is "some people are afraid of dogs". I know that because it starts "therefore" and because it is the last statement. The premise is everything else.
