    It is a proposition made as a basis for reasoning, without any assumption of its truth.

    It's more like we guess something without knowing the exact truth. Its the starting point of an investigation I suppose! Example; Take a murder case, there in the beginning we don't the reason behind it right? So first we come to a conclusion and they go ahead with that even if it's true or false.
