I wonder if the below argument is a valid or invalid?

Premise 1: All the humans can fly
Premise 2: I am a human
Conclusion: Therefore, I can fly

I also wonder, if that form of argument is a valid argument, then where is the problem, soundness?


Yes, this is a valid argument - if the premises were true, the conclusion would also be true. However, premise 1 is not true, so the argument is unsound.
