The paper describes how people use a variety of plausible, but uncertain inferences to answer questions, about which their knowledge is incomplete. This kind of reasoning is described in terms of how it is being implemented in the SCHOLARCAI SYSTEM. The paper also shows how people can be taught to reason in this way, using a Socratic tutorial method implemented in a system like SCHOLAR.
