While the object signified by both types of synthetic judgement really exist, the ground for the connection between the subject and the predicate of A priori proposition is necessary and universal while the ground for the A posteriori proposition is only contingent. This ground on which synthetic Propositions are based will also enable us to distinguish between synthetic propositions and analytic propositions according to some ultimate norm. This ground will give us to a criterion for distinguishing real objects from logical objects of thought. In case of a priori synthetic proposition, its possibility is grounded, first, on the pure forms including the space and time of perception and secondly on the matter of perceptions. Finally it is grounded on the a priori concepts. By reason of the fact that this type of synthetic proposition is grounded on the a priori forms of space and time and the a priori categories primarily it’s a priori synthetic proposition. It is…

I will firstly explain this…
