TO MAKE AN EARLY CONCLUSION TO WHAT HAD OBSERVED WHEATHER IT IS HAPPENED OR HAD ALREADY HAPPENED PROCESS : A) State the event that been observed. B) Give reasonable reason or early conclusion.
Why ? Why it’s happen ? How it’s happen ? What cause it ? Because ……… Maybe it ……….

ANSWERING TECHNIQUE A) Observation and inference sentences are saperated ; i) Observation : Plant A have many leaves ii) Inference : Because it have enough water. Observation and inference sentences are combine / join ; → Plant A have many leaves because it has enough water. Differentiate Inference i) Observation : Plant A have more leaves than Plant A ii) Inference : Because plant A have more water than plant B OR i) Observatin : Plant A have many leaves while plant B have less leaves ii) Inference : Because plant A get enough water while plant B get less water. OR iii) Plant A get more water compare to plant B.
