I am doing Jr. English summer homework and came across the rhetorical fallacy "two extremes." In looking for the definition, all I could find was "two wrongs" or "two wrongs make a right." So are they the same thing? And if not, what is "two extremes?"
No girlyQ...the phrase two wrongs make a right basically means that if someone does something wrong to you and you turn around and do something wrong to them because the made you angry (or hurt your feelings)...that your behavior is wrong. You can never fix a wrong situation by doing more wrong.
Two extremes means that 2 different things are as far as East is from West. A person may be Pro-life or Pro-Choice...another analogy would be water...the two extremes of water could be boiling hot and frozen solid.
