Let A be the state of any one of those parts: Ba
Let C be determined by the state of part: Bc
Without any further information the probability of Ba coinciding with Bc is 1/100.
There is a 99% chance the conclusion is false (and therefore the argument is invalid)
And 1% chance the conclusion is true (and therefore the argument is valid).
The fewer parts B has - the higher the probability of this being a valid argument.
The more parts B has - the lower the probability of this being a valid argument.
And so uncertainty will depend on what we substitute A, B and C with. But in the form the argument has here, there can't be any uncertainty at to validity. The argument is valid or it is invalid. And there is no uncertainty about soundness until you specify what you substitute A, B and C with.
