How to use guessing in a sentence?

  1. Douglas London:

    It means the intel is good enough that they're not guessing, but have enough pieces of the puzzle to confidently make out the image.

  2. Julius Randle:

    No second-guessing, just open shot, shoot it. Sacramento plays a really high pace and we had to get our transition in order and get stops and get our rhythm. Once we got stops offense came a lot easier.

  3. Lloyd Austin:

    I've known the chairman for a long time. We've fought together. We've served a couple of times in the same unit. So I'm not guessing at his character, and I think, I clearly have tremendous faith and confidence in the chairman.

  4. Jerome Seymour Bruner:

    The shrewd guess, the fertile hypothesis, the courageous leap to a tentative conclusion-these are the most valuable coins of the thinker at work. But in most schools guessing is heavily penalized and is associated somehow with laziness.

  5. Dan Pendergast:

    When it starts to snow, you will get that initial snow to melt on the road and you are going to have traffic rolling over the road and more snow, the snow starts compacting and bonding to the road. You're not going to get it off, there's not a heck of a lot you can do because you're not going to be able to get the chemicals down and I'm guessing those areas don't have the equipment we have here, like the icebreakers and really good cutting-edge equipment. We have 800 plows in the state, 200 in the metro area, Atlanta and Virginia are probably going to have 40 or less.
