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. The number of proficient adult musicians is less than it could be.
D. Children are particularly sensitive to criticism from adults.
E. All children should study music.


Pl discuss. Thanks

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. Out of scope
B. Everyone has the potential to learn music. Potential to develop musical talent is only discussed and not potential to learn
C. The number of proficient adult musicians is less than it could be.Correct answer
D. Children are particularly sensitive to criticism from adults.Too broad a conclusion.Not supported by the stimulus
E. All children should study music. Does not support the educator's conclusion

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 --> not mentioned
B. Everyone has the potential to learn music --> too broad from the scope of this passage
C. The number of proficient adult musicians is less than it could be -->best
D. Children are particularly sensitive to criticism from adults --> not mentioned
E. All children should study music --> no
