There is enough evidence to infer that those who do more research are more satisfied with their choice.

There is sufficient evidence to indicate that wine bottled with a screw cap is perceived to be inferior.

There is overwhelming evidence to conclude that the total distance of American golf courses is greater than that of British courses.

There is enough evidence to infer that the ratings of parking and the number of visits is positively related. Thus, there is enough evidence to conclude that the problem of parking is one reason for the decline in downtown shopping.
