In order to answer this it is important to know the meaning of explicit and inferential. Explicit means stated clearly, leaving no room for confusion or doubt. Inferential means coming from an inference. In other word, coming to a conclusion based on evidence and reasoning. So when you explicitly state something, you leave no doubt as to what you mean. Conversely, when you make an inferential statement, what you mean must be deduced by the reader or listener. Understanding this you should be able to figure out the right answer.
