B for me.

Parents state that boring academic sessions at school don't hold children's attention and so lead to children's bad behavior, but if boring lessons are attributed as the cause of bad behavior, children are effectively told that they can misbehave in school whenever they find the lessons boring.

A if boring lessons are attributed as the cause of bad behavior
B in attributing bad behavior to boring lessons ==> Correct
C in the attribution of boring lessons with bad behavior
D if you would attribute boring lessons with bad behavior
E if bad behavior is attributed to boring lessons ==> confuses the meaning of the sentence

by attributing bad behavior to boring lessons, children are effectively told that they can misbehave in school whenever they find the lessons boring.

It can not be B. attributing illogically modifies children in choice B.
This question is very similar to the problem from OG. Over there the best answer was E.
You may check it there.

Confused b/w B and E.

Attribute to - correct idiom. B is concise than E. Please check the OA.

A if boring lessons are attributed as the cause of bad behavior
B in attributing bad behavior to boring lessons
C in the attribution of boring lessons with bad behavior
D if you would attribute boring lessons with bad behavior
E if bad behavior is attributed to boring lessons


E - no need to use "attributing" - and in order to be parallel with "children are effectively told" one ends up with E "attributed to"

OA?

Hi,

i do not have the OA. i have taken this from the one of the online sources, which i think may or may not authenticate. I wanted to understand the logic behind the Q, hence put on the web.

Hope this helps.

That's exactly the sentence should be doing. It should be modifying children.

in attributing bad behavior to boring lessons ----> this modifies children

if bad behavior is attributed to boring lessons ----> doesn't modifies children. It modifies lessons.
You cannot have a run on sentence - two clauses cannot connect with just a comma in between.

attributing bad behavior to boring lessons should not modify children. Otherwise, it may bring the meaning that children attribute their bad behavior to boring lessons. Actually either parents or somebody else thinks that bad behavior is caused because of boring classes, but not children. The reason, I am saying that OA needs to be E is because, I saw very similar question in OG 12, and the answer was similar to E choice. This question just slightly modified the question from OG. Unfortunately, I do not remember the number of question

Yes, the OA should be E. This question is analogous to an OG question.
