Statements and Assumptions

Statements and Assumptions

A statement is a factuality that is connected to any sort of general subject matter. On the other hand, the assumption is an unsaid portion of a statement.


A statement is a term that has referred to a piece of information as well as factuality to any kind of general subject matter. On the other hand, the Assumption has referred to the unsaid portion of a statement that a person generally presumes before expressing some factuality as well as a statement. Assumption can be assumed to be true; however, it is not expressed as well as supported by some familiar facts. Statements and assumptions are interconnected to each other. A statement is generally given in some questions that are followed by some assumptions that are created on the ground of them. 

Critical elaboration of Statement and Assumption

Statement and Assumption are the terms that are interconnected to each other. The statement refers to the information as well as a fact to some sort of general subject matter. Assumptions are defined as an idea that can be supposed to be true; however, they are not generally supported by any sort of known facts. The assumptions are generally referred to as a small as well as unsaid portion of a statement. An example of Statement is: “It has always been my dream to study Journalism”. An example of Assumption is: “His actions were based on a false assumption”. 

Difference between Statement and Assumption

The assumption is an unsaid portion of a statement that is not supported by any kind of known factuality. It can be said in other words, that the assumption cannot be created on its own. Assumptions are generally used to represent a certain statement. The assumptions can be a portion of some confidence. Statements are generally referred to some information that represents any kind of general subject matter. A sentence is referred to some logically true subject matter. On the other hand, the assumptions cannot be rationally concluded by any information. The statement must follow a proper conclusion whereas an assumption needs not to follow the conclusion. 

Process of constructing a statement as well as an assumption

Certain steps need to be followed while constructing a meaningful sentence. Firstly, a proper draft of the sentence needs to be made, appropriate words need to be chosen and in that case, adequate time needs to be taken. The constructors must explore their strengths. On the other hand, assumptions can be constructed based on some presumption of the writer who is constructing an assumption. Assumptions are part of our belief system. In the process of making Assumptions, proper judgments need to be made, interpretations need to be formed and at the end, a meaningful conclusion, based on faiths must be formed. Assumptions can be made on the ground of an opinion or a strong faith. People generally make assumptions at the time when they become unable to properly understand a consequence and can detect the necessity to conclude.

Classification of Statement and Assumptions 

The assumptions are generally classified into three categories; they are “paradigmatic”, “prescriptive”, and “casual”. Paradigmatic assumption generally refers to the globe view assumptions that are related to how a person generally sees as well as orders the whole world. Prescriptive assumption generally denotes the happening in each situation. The last one is the causal assumption that generally denotes how things generally work and their specific impacts on the particular work process. Sentences are generally classified into four categories; they are “Declarative statement”, “Interrogative statement”, “Imperative statement”, and “exclamatory statement”. A declarative sentence refers to a sentence that generally declares a situation and gives proper meaning to the particular sentence. An example of a Declarative sentence is “My dog is sick”. An interrogative sentence has been defined as a sentence that generally asks certain questions. An example of an Interrogative sentence is “Who was the last speaker?”. An imperative question is generally denoted by the sentence that demonstrates a direct command, invitations, requests, instruction, and warnings. An example of an imperative sentence is: “Shut the front door”. An exclamatory sentence generally expresses strong feelings as well as the sentiment. Example of an exclamatory sentence: “Thank you, Sheldon! “

Uses of Statement and Assumption

A statement and an assumption generally deal with the procedure of determining a provided statement and presume the most actual sentence amidst the provided set of culminations. Generally, two culminations have been provided. More than one conclusion can become pragmatic depending upon a provided statement. Statements and assumptions are generally used in logical reasoning. A statement, as well as the conclusion, has been used based on the section of logical reasoning. In this case, the proper conclusion needs to be chosen with proper meaningful reason. It has been seen in this case that all conclusions may follow the logic and sometimes any one of them can follow the logic. Assumptions are used in the arguments as well as in the debates where many things are not included. Hence it can be said that the assumptions can be true and cannot be true also. 


In this context, it has been concluded that the statements and assumptions are interconnected with each other and they also have some differences. Without the existence of a sentence, an assumption cannot be constructed. The classifications of statements and the assumptions are stated in this context. The process of using statements and assumptions also has been taken into consideration. The usage of assumptions and statements in logical reasoning has also been satiated in this mentioned context.
