By doing so, you can gain a deeper understanding of the situation, evaluate different possibilities, and make more informed decisions.

    Explanation
    The basic steps for critical thinking include observing the situation, analyzing data, and evaluating solutions. By observing the situation, one can gather information and identify any problems or issues. Analyzing data involves examining the available information and evidence to gain a deeper understanding of the situation. Finally, evaluating solutions involves considering different options and determining which one is the most effective or appropriate. Presenting your findings is not mentioned as a basic step for critical thinking, as it is more related to communicating the results of the critical thinking process.
