Logical Fallacy: Affirming the Consequent 
  Affirming the Consequent is a nonvalidating form of argument in propositional logic; for instance, let "p" be false and "q" be true, then there is no inconsistency in supposing that the first, conditional premiss is true, which makes the premisses true and the conclusion false. 
  So, in general, in an instance of the form Affirming the Consequent, if it is reasonable to consider the converse of the conditional premiss to be a suppressed premiss, then the argument is not fallacious, but a valid enthymeme. 
  Thus, the CounterExample is a fallacious instance of Affirming the Consequent.
