43. 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
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
Pl discuss.

vaivish1723,

Please underline the part of the sentence that is in question.
Now here is my take on the solution.

Idiom tested is "Attribute X to Y". "Attribute as" or "attribute with" are incorrect. Choices A / C / D are out of the race.

Attribute X to Y means, Y is the source / cause for X.

Now we need to decide which one should be X and which one to be Y between "boring lessons" and "bad behavior". In the non underlined part(or the part of the statment that is correct) it is clear that boring lessons are the cause of bad behaviour. Translating it to idiomatic format,

Attribute bad behaviour(X) to boring lessons(Y)

IMO A.

My take is E.

Attribute bad behaviour(X) to boring lessons(Y) which is mentioned in E.

I think it's E. A doesn't make sense since it should be attributed to as opposed to attributed as.

What is the source of these question I have seen at least 5 questions that look mere copy of OG questions.
For the matter E is better than B despite both use correct idiom.
