Educator: Like many other difficult pursuits, music requires intense study and practice from an early age in order for one to become proficient. But many school music programs encourage only children who demonstrate early aptitude to continue studying music, while children who do not appear especially musical are directed towards other activities. Having learned to think of themselves as musically inept, these children do not devote any time to music, and thus some of them deprive themselves of the opportunity to develop latent but potentially significant musical talent.

The educator's statements, if true, would best support which of the following conclusions?

A)Music education should not devote special attention to talented students.
B)Everyone has the potential to learn music.
C)Talent is not always apparent at an early age.
D)Children are particularly sensitive to criticism from adults.
E)All children should study music.


A,B and E are out of scope because they don't follow premises in the passage. i was confused between C and D , but than on reading the passage again i noticed :
Having learned to think of themselves as musically inept, these children do not devote any time to music, and thus some of them deprive themselves of the opportunity to develop latent but potentially significant musical talent.

Since D is a generic statement. It's eliminated. Hence C is the correct answer.
