According to a recent study on financial roles, one-third of high school seniors say that they have “significant financial responsibilities.” These responsibilities include, but are not limited to, contributing to food, shelter, or clothing for themselves or their families. At the same time, a second study demonstrates that a crisis in money management exists for high school students. According to this study, 80% of high school seniors have never taken a personal finance class even though the same percentage of seniors has opened bank accounts and one-third of these account holders has bounced a check.

Which of the following conclusions can be properly drawn from the statements above?

A. High schools would be wise to incorporate personal finance classes into their core curricula.

B. At least one-third of high school seniors work part-time jobs after school.

C. The number of high school seniors with significant financial responsibilities is greater than the number of seniors who have bounced a check.

D. Any high school seniors who contribute to food, shelter, or clothing for themselves or their families have significant financial responsibilities.

E. The majority of high school students have no financial responsibilities to their families.

I got this wrong but when I saw the OA I realised my silly mistake!

Which of the following conclusions can be properly drawn from the statements above?

A. High schools would be wise to incorporate personal finance classes into their core curricula. OFS

B. At least one-third of high school seniors work part-time jobs after school. OFS

C. The number of high school seniors with significant financial responsibilities is greater than the number of seniors who have bounced a check.

D. Any high school seniors who contribute to food, shelter, or clothing for themselves or their families have significant financial responsibilities.

E. The majority of high school students have no financial responsibilities to their families.
Tricky option. Passage states: one-third of high school seniors say that they have “significant financial responsibilities.” Word significant is key to reject this option

Therefore C.
