Possibly deduce it's extracted (6)


I believe the answer is:


'extracted' is the definition.
('educe' can be a synonym of 'extract')

'possibly deduce' is the wordplay.
'possibly' indicates anagramming the letters.
'deduce' is an anagram of 'EDUCED'.

'it's' is the link.

(Other definitions for educed that I've seen before include "Caused to develop, brought out" , "Inferred" , "Brought out (something latent)" , "Brought out or developed" , "Made to appear" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph and The Globe and Mail.
