If the middle-class elderly people are more likely to join organization than are economically disadvantaged elderly people then the statement indirectly strengthen the fact that very few people from economically disadvantaged people join the the organization which raises the seriousness of those organizations commitment to speaking out on behalf of the need of economically disadvantaged elderly people.
Any other suggestions??
And what is the OA?
The fact that several of the largest senior citizens organizations are constituted almost exclusively of middle-class elderly people has led critics to question the seriousness of those organizations commitment to speaking out on behalf of the needs of economically disadvantaged elderly people.
Which of the following generalizations, if true, would help to substantiate the criticism implicit in the statement above?
A. The ideology of an organization tends reflect the traditional political climate of its locale.
B. The needs of disadvantaged elderly people differ in some ways from those of other disadvantaged groups within contemporary society.
C. Organized groups are better able to publicize their problems and seek redress than individuals acting alone.
D. Middle-class elderly people are more likely to join organizations than are economically disadvantaged elderly people.
E. People usually join organizations whose purpose is to further the economic, political, or social interests of their members.
