Inductive inferences or inductive generalizations are abstractions or constructs based on information or measurements from a sample or set of direct observations Inductive inferences or generalizations however are no more true or contain no more information than the observations or measures upon which they are based or drawn Deductive inferences are conclusions derived from a set of premises which are usually inductive inferences or generalizations A deductive inference or conclusion draws its truth value from the premises and its validity from the logic/language structure A sound argument is one which is both true and valid A mistaken or false deductive inference or conclusion is often the result of an error in the preliminary reasoning (See logical fallacies )
