By using the precepts of the scientific methods, it follows that critical thinking in essence is employed. This is not limited to the study of science but to all other disciplines which delves on sought-after solutions to problems. Through the testing and answering of personal questions which leads to plausible answers scientific thinking is used. This is in essence thinking correctly and coming up with reliable answers in most aspects in life. The process of scientific thinking and critical thinking is one and the same in practice and theory.

Another problem that comes with it is that the problem is located in part of the house which is dark and would therefore be a further complication on the matter at hand.
On this stage the most conceivable thing to do is to go back in memory and think of the most relevant details
