imply means to suggest something without actually saying it directly, whereas infer means to deduce or conclude something based on what someone else has said.
Pat: Can you afford to buy that car?
Sam: Are you implying (i.e. saying) that I am poor?
Pat: No. Not at all. I meant that, because you have three cars already, you may not have the time or space to take care of a fourth car. You've inferred (i.e. concluded) the wrong meaning!
What can we imply from that inference? means, What can we say without actually saying it about what we have concluded or deduced from what someone else has said. Now that's a brain teaser. :shock:
