Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Inductive reasoning (as opposed to deductive reasoning or abductive reasoning) is reasoning in which the premises seek to supply strong evidence for (not absolute proof of) the truth of the conclusion. While the conclusion of a deductive argument is certain, the truth of the conclusion of an inductive argument is probable, based upon the evidence given.[1]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Try reading it again, and critically look at what the definition says. It jumps around a bit, so you will have to be able to follow when it is talking about each one. If you look closely this is what is says: Inductive reasoning is to supply strong, probable evidence for the truth, but not absolute or specific proof. Deductive reasoning is certain/ specific truths. So, is Inductive reasoning the process of making a specific conclusion?
