Preparing for an Inquiry:
What is the purpose of preparing evidence for an inquiry? It can only be to persuade the reader of the merits of the case found within it. How do we persuade the reader? By presenting the requisite information, subjecting it to proper analysis, followed by sound and logical conclusions. So a proof is (or should be) a persuasive, informative, analytical and logical document.
