How to use "Pre suppositions" in context?

Before suppositions, there were only assumptions. The definition of an assumption is, "a tentative or uncontrolled statement or conclusion, based on incomplete information." In other words, an assumption is a guess, without any factual basis.

The problem with making assumptions is that they're often not based on anything. For example, we might assume that everyone in a room is wearing a yellow shirt, when in fact only a small percentage of the people in the room are wearing yellow shirts. The same goes for assumptions about people's personalities and motivations.

Consider the following example. A woman walks into a bar and orders a drink.
