### Validity of argument . 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.

Draw two circles which overlap a bit, one to represent philosophers, and the other to represent the absent-minded; the overlap represents that some philosophies are absent-minded. 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.
