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?


Music education should not devote special attention to talented students.

Everyone has the potential to learn music.

The number of proficient adult musicians is less than it could be.

Children are particularly sensitive to criticism from adults.

All children should study music.

I would narrow it down to B or C and would go with C since B sounds too broad.

I'd stick my neck out for B. While C does sound good, we really cannot conclude that the number of proficient adult musicians could be higher - though it can be inferred. Why I don't like C is because for all you know it could have been what it is because it's possible even after spending time and learning the children could not develop into proficient musicians.

What the educationist is trying to make us believe IMO is that everyone has the potential - though it's not necessary that each one will necessarily become proficient.

B.. C is a bit of a stretch from the original basis of the argument
