The popular notion that teachers are generally apathetic about microcomputer technology is false, or at least dated: a recently published survey indicates that 86 percent of the 5000 teachers who responded to survey questionnaires expressed a high level of interest in microcomputers.
Which of the following, if ture, would be most damaging to the argument above ?
(A) No attempt was made in the survey to determine whether the teachers who received questionnaires had any previous experience with microcomputers.
(B) Teachers who are interested in microcomputer technology were more likely then other to complete and return their questionaires
(C) Questionaires were sent to teachers without regard to their areas of subject-matter expertise or teaching experience.
(D) There have been several important developments in the classroom applications of microcomputer since the survey results were tabulated.
(E) The survey was conducted as part of a marketing study by a company that manufactures and sells computers.
Pl post yr reasoning !
agree with B
: teachers apathetic to microcomputers
: teachers are interested in microcomputers
NB: Author's argument relies solely on the results of the recent survey, therefore the easiest way to weaken author's argument is to challenge/find some flaw in the survey method.
