I read NO definition of Observation.
I see NO definition section.

A good definition is a text that precisely denotes a concept and is written such that the defined term can be substituted by that text without any changes.
A good definition is not using the concept name in its definition.

>>> To judge however if a BMI is a sign of obesity, that is subjective. For a normal person, a BMI of 28 could be obese, but for a weightlifter, because of all those heavy muscles, a BMI of 30 still is not obese. So that would be evaluations.
