    Both B and C.

    I can't choose two options. And it seems like the student did not observe that it rained, rather he/she observed the dark clouds and playground, right?

    But the student observed the dark clouds and wet grass.

    Yes, but the question asks about which skill the student used to determine that it rained.

    Good point. You are really thinking. :-) I have to agree that the student used inference!
