What is an Inferential Claim?


An Inferential claim is a claim that states some facts after we apply reasoning to a certain passage. Also, it may state that something supports/implies/follows another. It defines the main objective hidden in any argument.

Types of Inferential claim:

  • Explicit Inferential Claim: We usually attest the Explicit Inferential Claim with concluding words that indicate some decision. These claims include indicator words like Thus, Therefore, Since, Hence, etc.

For example, Junk food contains a huge amount of cholesterol and a high level of cholesterol leads to blockage of blood vessels. Thus, Junk food may cause a heart attack.

  • Implicit Inferential Claim: We use an Implicit Inferential Claim to determine an inferential relationship between the statements of a passage. However, the passage does not include an indicator word.

For example, Global warming is leading to the meltdown of ice at the poles. This meltdown is raising the water level of the oceans and coastal areas are more prone to flood now.
