### HideShow timer Statistics

Adoption rates vary a great deal based on demographic statistics. Depending on the socioeconomic status of prospective adoptive parents, their chances of successfully adopting a child can vary by up to a factor of two hundred. Ultimately, it is therefore clear that wealthier families are much more likely to successfully adopt.

The answer to which of the following questions would best help evaluate the effectiveness of the above argument?

A. What are the socioeconomic statuses of families who put their children up for adoption?
B.. What are the average income levels of families who successfully adopt compared to unsuccessful families?
C. What factors, other than socioeconomic status, do adoption agencies use when selecting a family with which to place a child?
D. Is adoption primarily through state run agencies, not-for-profit charitable agencies, or private for-profit businesses?
E. Do the adopted children come primarily from foster care or are they adopted directly from their birth families?

B for me.

A - is tricky - note that the child is put up for adoption,while we need to talk abt the child being adopted.

B- conclusion of the argument is that wealthier families adopt.
This question might help ans that.

C- kinda close, but not enuf.

D - doesnt interest me .

E - how does it matter ???
