Technological education is worsening. People between eighteen and twenty-four, who are just emerging from their formal education, are more likely to be technologically illiterate than somewhat older adults. And yet, issues for public referenda will increasingly involve aspects of technology.

Which of the following conclusions can be properly drawn from the statements above?

(A) If all young people are to make informed decisions on public referenda, many of them must learn more about technology.

(B) Thorough studies of technological issues and innovations should be made a required part of the public and private school curriculum.

(C) It should be suggested that prospective voters attend applied science courses in order to acquire a minimal competency in technical matters.

(D)If young people are not to be overly influenced by famous technocrats, they must increase their knowledge of pure science.

(E) On public referenda issues, young people tend to confuse real or probable technologies with impossible ideals.

Which of the following conclusions can be properly drawn from the statements above?

(A) If all young people are to make informed decisions on public referenda, many of them must learn more about technology. The premise states young people are not tech savvy and more public referenda will involve technology. To b more informed about public referenda young people should be more informed.

(B) Thorough studies of technological issues and innovations should be made a required part of the public and private school curriculum. This is a strong choice of word stating that it much be required.

(C) It should be suggested that prospective voters attend applied science courses in order to acquire a minimal competency in technical matters. technical matters seems to be out of scope here.

(D)If young people are not to be overly influenced by famous technocrats, they must increase their knowledge of pure science. out of scope

(E) On public referenda issues, young people tend to confuse real or probable technologies with impossible ideals.out of scope.

A and B are close,

A only survives.

A it is. This is the only answer which stays within the scope of the argument.

Issues and innovations in technology are not mentioned in the argument. Moreover, adding them into the curriculum seems beyond the scope of the argument. That is why B is wrong.

C, D and E are very much out of scope.
