"If an object is inflated with air, it will expand."

This statement is sometimes true. It pertains to a general term which is 'object'. So it depends on the object so that the statement will be considered true. The objects that will expand when inflate are balloons, the wheel of a car or anything made of rubber.

So if I revised the sentence and be specific like, "If a balloon is inflated with air, it will expand." Then this statement is true. (Well, considering it is not a defective balloon.)
