What's the difference? Powerscore groups them together right? I have an excel sheet that separates them. Why? Thanks in advance for the help!

There's a small difference between "must be true"/"properly inferred" and "most strongly supported," namely that the former really absolutely must be true, whereas the latter is just by far the most reasonable conclusion given the information. This typically means that the former is heavier on conditional/quantity statements ("Most X are Y" or "All Y are Z" sorts of things).

But both are Inference questions by pretty much anyone's standards.
