Definition & Citations:

Although the words “show” and “indicate” are sometimes interchangeable in popular use, they are not always so. To “show” is to make apparent or clear by evi- dence; to prove; while an “indication” may be merely a symptom; that which points to or gives direction to the mind. Coyle v. Com., 104 Pa. 133.
