15. M: It is almost impossible to find a person between the ages of 85 an 90 who primarily uses the left hand.

Q: Seventy to ninety years ago, however, children were punished for using their left hands to eat or to write and were forced to use their right hands.

Q’s response serves to counter any use by M of the evidence about 85 to 90 year olds in supports of which one of the following hypotheses?

(A) Being born right-handed confers a survival advantage.
(B) Societal attitudes toward handedness differ at different times.
(C) Forcing a person to switch from a preferred hand is harmless.
(D) Handedness is a product of both genetic predisposition and social pressures.
(E) Physical habits learned in school often persist in old age.

E. Children were forced to use their right hands to write with. These habits persisted all throughout life.

the question is not so easy to understand for a french man like me :lol:

I would say A

I think the question is telling us that Q has given this answer to counter the idea of M, what is M hypthesis ? I think it's A

M was going to say that people using right hand live longer than the people using the left hand, but Q explained that before children had to use the right hand, which explains that you can not make the difference between people who were using their right hand and those who were using their left hand...

Maybe I misunderstood the question.

A for me

i thought e as well but was confused about what the question was asking.

it says 'Q’s response serves to counter any use by M of the evidence about 85 to 90 year olds '.thus e just restates what Q says.

can we discuss this in more detail?takers anyone? :roll:

Best.
