    throughout Mr. Fox’s entire testimony. He begins by using pathos, establishing that he is well known and reflects on the first time he admitted that he suffers from Parkinson’s; he states, “When I first spoke publicly about my eight years of experience as a person with Parkinson’s many were surprised, in part because of my age […]” (Page 1 Paragraph 3) and right away he uses ethos to explain why “many were surprised”.

In confirming that it is considered a diorama, there is something that all three of these…
