Is it an Observation or Inference??
Observations are things we can see... Inferences are judgements made based on our observations and what we know.

Observation- There is a shadow in front of the lion.


Inference- There is another animal checking on him.

Qualitative vs Quantitative

Qualitative observation- Uses you senses. Color, smell, texture etc.
Quantitative observation- Uses measurement tools for observations. Length, Mass, numbers etc.
