"Theory" is too broad! Let take an example for you to understand "inductive and deductive". In grammar, for example, "inductive grammar" is used when you give your students some various examples related to one point of grammar, then ask your students to draw the structure and some notes, some exceptions... In the other hand, "deductive grammar" is applied when you give them the already made structure, some notes, exceptions,... and let them give example based on the structure!!! And now you can yourself answer your questions??? This looks like "inductiveness"!!! Hihi....
