The Holmes Brothers 2 - The Truth about Deduction

I have pointed out in part 1 how the Holmes Brothers' apparent similarities in personality and career choice are not actually that similar. 

I now tackle the question of deduction namely: “if they didn’t spend their childhood together why are they both so good at deduction? Mycroft must have taught Sherlock!”

Deduction as a skill is really not rare. It’s not something the Holmes Brothers have in common with just each other but something they have in common with a great deal of people. 

Deduction is a skill they didn't have to have learnt from each other.
