Donde hay humo hay fuego. Así es esto. ) Por lo tanto, así. ) Cuando los lógicos indios ven en el tercer miembro una premisa universal, el cuarto es interpretado como miembro de un proceso deductivo: es la aplicación, al caso particular de la colina, de lo afirmado para el caso general en el tercer miembro. De ahí que algunos, actualmente, llamen a este miembro «raciocinio» o simplemente «deducción». Y a partir del tercer miembro considerado premisa universal tendríamos: Donde hay humo hay fuego; en la colina hay humo; por lo tanto en la colina hay fuego.
Y así, sucesivamente, dado el ejemplo, «como en una cocina», preguntar: «¿El hecho de que en la cocina haya humo y fuego significa que siempre se dan juntos el humo y el fuego? ».
