In some cases the logical mode of reasoning is often based on what can be proven scientifically, for instance, if you wanted to explain the growing problem in domestic violence, in order to be persuasive aside from the prevalent case studies, one must provide adequate documentation to prove how much this epidemic has grown over the course of the years and what solutions would be used to alleviate the problem.
