Don't Use Deductive Arguments to Connect Key Lines, Use Inductive

Connecting key lines in a document is important to answer the key question and provide clear reasoning. To do that, structure the document using inductive arguments rather than deductive arguments. That’s because a deductive structure could introduce a large distance (number of paragraphs) between the problem and answer which the reader would be required to hold in their head and build their own connections which can be confusing and difficult to read.

As a rule of thumb, deductive arguments are good choice for structuring supporting sentences of a key line in the same paragraph and inductive arguments are a good choice for structuring key lines across a section or document.
