"Non sequitur" is a Latin phrase that translates to "it does not follow" in English. It refers to a logical fallacy where a conclusion or statement does not logically follow from the preceding argument or evidence. In other words, it is a statement or response that is irrelevant or does not make sense in relation to the previous statement or context.
