Concerns of over-population in country XYZ led to government funded birth-control initiatives that proved ineffective in curbing population growth. It has been suggested that these initiatives failed due to the traditionally high value placed on male children within the culture of XYZ.
Which of the following best explains the reasoning behind the suggestion described in the second sentence?
A. The population of country XYZ believes that birth control increases the probability of conceiving females.
B. Since every parent wishes to produce a male child, they will avoid birth control until they conceive a male.
C. Birth Control initiatives are typically only successful in female dominated cultures.
D. Cultures that place high values on male children do not respond well to govenment funded initiatives.
E. The citizens of country XYZ are not concerned with the possibility of over-population.
Please respond with your explanations. The OE I have for this is less than convincing.
stem - It has been suggested that these initiatives failed due to the traditionally high value placed on male children within the culture of XYZ.
option B - Since every parent wishes to produce a male child, they will avoid birth control until they conceive a male.
Since they are waiting to get a male child they dont opt for the birth control techniquies , the reason of waiting for a male child is coz of their tradition be it for heir or something else to get a male child _________________
