Chalmers distinguishes several scrutability theses: the definitional (which he drops), the conditional, the inferential, and the a priori.
Scrutability theses are implausible for the average person since many people cannot remember the facts they have been presented with, and worse, they indulge in fallacious reasoning.
With his scrutability theses defined, Chalmers argues for the truth of his scrutability theses.
In chapter four, Chalmers argues for a priori scrutability.
But Chalmers notes he could concede these points and expand the scrutability base to include normative expressions.
