Make the Logical Inference.

On the reading and listening sections of TOEFL®Test, you will have to answer inference questions.

Inference questions ask you to "infer" something. This means that you understand something that is not stated directly. Instead, the writer or speaker "suggests" or "implies" something indirectly.

Imagine that there is a boy named Mike and a girl named Sally in a classroom. If Sally looks at Mike and smiles, Mike can infer…

A) Sally is hungry and wants to eat curry and rice.
B) Sally is deeply in love with Mike and wants to have seven children with him.
C) Sally may like Mike.
D) Sally is smiling at Mike.

The correct answer is....

C, because it is the only logical inference we can make from Sally smiling at Mike. A is an example of an unrelated inference. B is too strong of an inference, and D is not an inference at all but a restatement of a fact.
