Goal of the Question

What does an Inference Question ask for?

To distinguish fact from possibilities. In other words, you're looking for the one, and ONLY ONE answer choice that MUST BE TRUE from the information provided.

These questions are very similar to data sufficiency in the sense that they reward those who can distinguish between when something is likely true and when it has to be true for a fact.

Example:
Company A introduced a new product last year that is selling better than any of its other currently produced products, and perhaps it may continue to sell better than any of the products its currently developing.

The passage suggests which of the following?

A wrong answer: The new product is Company A's most profitable product.
Just because the product is the company’s best selling product doesn’t automatically make it the most
profitable.
 

A correct answer: The new product could be Company A's most profitable product.
We don’t that the new product is the company’s most profitable, but we do know that it could be.
