  1. Can you please give rationalization on item 13? It started with the examples first (general) down to the definition (specific). So, why is it inductive? :)

    1. general to specific is Inductive po, while specific to general id Deductive.

    2. examples were specific and defintion is general. inductive is correct

    3. it should be deductive. from general to specific.

  2. In no. 21 po diba it should be generalization? Kasi po baga synthesis and it means combination of ideas. Bakit po evaluation?
