1. Carry your opponent's proposition beyond its natural limits; exaggerate it. The more general your opponent's statement becomes, the more objections you can find against it. The more restricted and narrow his or her propositions remain, the easier they are to defend by him or her.

6. Another plan is to confuse the issue by changing your opponent's words or what he or she seeks to prove.
