The basics of inductive reasoning is the way you use familiarity with a subject to make predictions about things or events that are associated with it. For example, if you have read about an event, you can figure out more about it. If you know that a person is involved in an accident, you can make a prediction about what his/her reaction will be to the accident.
Now, quizzers and quiz makers want to know about these subjects so they design questionnaires to test these topics. When they ask you to answer questions, you can confidently answer the questions by answering them in this fashion.
The most important thing to understand is that your “thoughts” are the quiz maker’s questions, and you need to be able to answer these questions for the results to be accurate. This doesn’t mean that you can’t think about the topic or that you shouldn’t be objective about it.
You can have a lot of experience studying with past subjects. If you take a few years of mathematics classes, you can have a lot of past experiences to draw on. Similarly, if you are a historian, a pianist, or a veterinarian, you can make a very good estimate of what some of the questions are about.
One of the most general types of answers to questions about history is “It happened.” However, a broader answer might be “This has always happened,” “This always happens,” or “Things usuallydo this” “Things usually don’t this.” Depending on the question, you may have a very specific answer to it, but you won’t know the answer until you take the quiz.
Your teacher may also have put quizzes on their exams about past events, which will be an instance of inductive reasoning that you might be familiar with, even if you didn’t study history in school. A question might have been about whether people knew of several instances of crime being committed.
Here’s a question that the quiz maker could ask you: “Did you hear about a crime which was particularly heinous, such as a murder?” If you answered “Yes,” then the quiz maker is asking you about something that is not possible or impossible. If you answered “No,” then the quiz maker isn’t asking you about something that you know of, but is instead trying to discover a fact that you don’t know.
The problem with this question is that the quiz maker is trying to discover whether you can guess something about a subject. If you can’t guess anything, then you probably don’t know of it, and thus you don’t know what the quiz maker is asking you about. So, I want to be absolutely clear about one thing: While it is possible for someone to know of something that doesn’t exist, it is not possible for someone to know something that does exist.
And this is when we get into situations where the quizzer is trying to tell you that you know of a fact about an event, but you can’t guess what the question is about. In this case, the quiz maker is asking you about the fact that an event happened, but not about the actual event itself. So, it is possible for you to come up with an answer that points out how that event actually happened, but you cannot come up with an answer that points out how that event happened.
It is impossible for a student to have a full understanding of every quiz maker’s question. Even the most experienced students get a little lost, and will look up things in order to see what answers point out the fact that the quiz maker is asking them about.
One other thing to consider is that a quizzer can only ask questions about things that he knows about. and so you can ask questions about those things and get some knowledge, but the quizzing will still be based on what you know.
