Imagine Your Child Is Trying To Prove That She Did Not Steal Chocolate Chip Cookies From The Cookie Jar, So She Makes This Argument: There Are No Chocolate Stains On My Hands, So I Couldn't Have Stolen The Cookies. Does This Example Require Deductive Or Inductive Logic?

I would say that it would possibly require inductive logic, because it would be most difficult to deduce, due to lack of evidence. However, you may be able to induce a confession from the child.
 By the way, is the child's name kmo?
Just wondering, because I know a cookie thief who goes by that name.

Very funny comment, thisismyac.
In my opinion, it is not a very covincing argument which the child has made, because she may have washed her hands. However, I do believe that is one intelligent child you have there.
