Euler diagrams How does one draw a Euler diagram to determine the validity of the following argument? Thanks: Some philosophers are absent minded. Zitta N is a philosopher. _____________________________ Zitta N is absent minded. If someone would draw a pic that would be great.

There is a non-overlapped region within each circle, so being inside one circle doesn't imply being within the other. Some form of annotation could be used for clarification.
