    D. Deductive and inductive
    Explanation
    Deductive and inductive are the two types of logic. Deductive logic involves reasoning from general principles to specific conclusions, using syllogisms and formal rules. It is based on the idea that if the premises are true, then the conclusion must also be true. Inductive logic, on the other hand, involves reasoning from specific observations or examples to general conclusions. It is based on the idea that if the premises are true, then the conclusion is likely to be true, but not necessarily certain.
