    Read the following passage: The mushrooming middle classes of India and China helped cause the 2008 price hike by eating more meat, which, in turn, mops up grain: it can take, for example, 8lb of cereals to produce one of beef. And cars contributed as well as cows. Biofuels transferred over 100 million tons of cereals from plates to petrol tanks: to fill a 4 x 4 tank requires enough grain to feed a poor person for a year. Speculation, too, helped drive prices up. The same factors are at work again . . . Geoffrey Lean, "One Poor Harvest Away from Chaos"

    The term "inductive reasoning" refers to reasoning that takes specific information and makes a broader generalization that is considered probable, allowing for the fact that the conclusion may not be accurate. I think this definition is better, its clearer, so lets start over with these questions, using this

    for number 5 im not sure It is important to know your audience otherwise you do not know how to effectively communicate with them on their terms and stand to waste advertising dollars pitching to the wrong audience or not pitching appropriately.

    Deductive reasoning, also deductive logic or logical deduction or, informally, "top-down" logic, is the process of reasoning from one or more statements (premises) to reach a logically certain conclusion. It differs from inductive reasoning or abductive reasoning.

    In either, you get a new piece of information based on other information. However, in deductive reasoning that informational base is fact: you know it to be true, and therefore the new piece of information is fact as well. In inductive reasoning, your informational base is not fact, but a strongly supported theory. So, with inductive reasoning, you are not always right. The plus side to inductive reasoning is that you get theories. If you use deductive reasoning, then you dont believe something unless you can prove it based on another fact. But with inductive reasoning, you discover new ideas, or expand knowledge of concepts.
