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.
tough question...especially trying to figure out what the question is asking for... I pick A, as it is asking for what is Q trying to argue against with his/her response or also means what could M be trying to prove with the evidence that you can't find anyone 85/90 years old using left hands....so the logical answer would be that he might be trying to prove that right handed people live longer...therefore survival advantage...A
