What is deduction?

Deduction is a form of logical reasoning

Deduction is the form of logical reasoning used when solving problems or crafting arguments. This logical form relies on linking a series of dependent ideas one by one to reach an inevitable conclusion.

A deductive problem solving process can have many steps that connect one by one to lead to a conclusion. A deductive storyline, by comparison, has only three steps: a statement, a comment on that statement, and an inevitable conclusion.
