i don't know if this works the drinking age is 21 and anyone drinking below that age will get in trouble so if someone gets in trouble when he is found drinking you can infer that that person is not yet 21 Well, there's not enough information above to indicate the person who got into trouble is younger than 21. We don't know if the person was driving erratically, had an accident, disturbed the peace at a business or on a street corner, etc. Any of these situations I listed, among others, could cause a drinker, regardless of age to get into trouble. When we infer, we put together our prior knowledge with the information provided to us, whether in a picture, article, story, life, etc., to draw a logical conclusion. This is an attempt to shed further light on the specific statement, "so if someone gets in trouble when he is found drinking you can infer that that person is not yet 21" An example of an inference would be: We see a beautifully painted house, clean yard, and manicured lawn. We can then infer that the person(s) living there take pride in their home, like it to look good, and value it. Another example: You are driving through a neighborhood and see an open gate. Then a few blocks later we see a dog obviously well-cared-for walking around. You may infer that they dog got out of the gate and is now wondering around the neighborhood. Depending on the type of dog, you may even go a step further and infer that someone may get bitten at some point, as certain types of dogs are more aggressive than others.
