    Cool logical conclusion

    Will you please give me the meaning and usage of "logical conclusion" so that I don't hesitate and can freely use this phrase. Thanks.

    Logical conclusion is a term sometimes used in grammar to refer to the situation where you take something for granted, and you are sure that it is the case:

    She must be rich. Look at her house and the car! They're brilliant!
    She must have won a lot of money on the lottery. She's been playing Thunderball ever since it was launched.
    You must be joking saying that you've failed your Matura exam! You scored 100% in the mock test.

    She can't be rich. Look at her clothing. Even Brad, the homeless guy, is wearing better clothes.
    She can't have won millions on the lottery. She can't even afford a new car.
    You can't be serious saying that you've passed your driving test. You were awful while practising for the test!

    Question Re: logical conclusion

    What I have read is not in the context of grammar. In most of the cases I've heard people saying more or less in the following sense: eg., (1) " I will do this/that to take the matter to its logical conclusion." (2) "You must do this so as the matter reaches its logical conclusion."

    Then that must be this:

    logical conclusion = rational judgment; reasonable outcome
