In the inference based questions, you are looking for the conclusion of the stimulus. Think of a debate. A speaker is in favor of the motion. He is giving you data to prove his point, to support the motion, to establish his position. The data is given in the form of premises (which we assume to be true) in the stimulus. In Inference questions, you are given the data and you need to figure out the position the author is trying to establish. This means, you will be able to 'infer' the conclusion from the stimulus. The conclusion will not be 'new information'. It will be something that the stimulus tells you.
You can check out the Veritas CR1 and CR2 books for further discussion on how to identify the inference and for examples and practice questions.

Dear Nikhil,

Summarize paragraphs (or every 3 lines if the passage is one large paragraph). The main point is a combination of the paragraph summaries. You can also check out our free concepts on Main point (in Reading Comprehension course). Do go through all the (three) free concepts. Our customers had reported considerable improvement after going through these concepts.

We also cover all the inferences (Generic to specific, specific to Generic, simple and complex combination) in the inference concepts in both CR and RC.

Just log on to the e-GMAT account to access the free concepts.
