Inductive reasoning is a kind of reasoning in which there is some kind of evidence provided before coming to any conclusion and inductive reasoning is just opposite to deductive reasoning. The conclusion of the ‘deductive argument’ is certain; the truth in order to the conclusion part of an argument which is indicative may be a probability and that is mostly based upon the evidence given.
In many dictionaries, Inductive reasoning is defined as the derivation of the general principals from the specific observations even if there are enough inductive arguments that do not have that form. Inductive reasoning allows for the possibility that a conclusion can be wrong and they can be wrong even if the premises are true. Inductive reasoning is either weak or strong and that depends on how possible the conclusion is true.
