INFERENCES Making an inference is also known as reading between the lines. The reader must put together the information the author provides and the information that the reader already knows to come up with the answer. the text + previous knowledge = inference

Making an inference about a character requires you to act like a detective. Based on the different facts given in the text (A+B+C), you have to make a judgment, or inference (D), about that character. What makes inference-making hard is that the word you come up with must come out of your own brain, for the text very rarely will supply you with it (A+B+C=D).
