Does this question ask for a conclusion

Postby wanderlust » Sat Jul 23, 2011 11:27 pm

Can anyone help me with this LR question stem?
It says, "Of the following, which one follows logically from the passage?"
The stimulus is a fact set without conclusion.
Should the correct answer choice be a conclusion or a mere inference would do?
Thanks

An inference can be a conclusion as well.

Given that all men are mortal, and Socrates is a man, we can infer that Socrates is mortal.
