At a certain college, graduate teaching
assistants conduct discussion sections but have
no input into grading. It has been suggested that
graduate assistants be given some grading
responsibility, but many undergraduates oppose
that proposal. They argue that if grades are
assigned by graduate assistants, regular fulltime
faculty will devote less time and attention
to undergraduate work.

The information in the passage above answers
which one of the following questions?

(A) Are grades assigned by graduate teaching
assistants inherently as fair as those
given by regular faculty?
(B) Are some undergraduates in favor of
maintaining the full-time faculty’s interest
in their schoolwork?
(C) May regular full-time faculty conduct
discussion sections at the college?
(D) Does graduate student contact with
undergraduates’ work make the grades
assigned by regular faculty less valid?
(E) Are regular faculty members in favor of
giving graduate assistants some teaching
responsibility?

B for me-

(A) Are grades assigned by graduate teaching
assistants inherently as fair as those
given by regular faculty? =>> stem does not talk about this
(B) Are some undergraduates in favor of
maintaining the full-time faculty’s interest
in their schoolwork? => yes, stem talks about less time and attention devotaed by full time faculty
(C) May regular full-time faculty conduct
discussion sections at the college? ==>> no reference in stem
(D) Does graduate student contact with
undergraduates’ work make the grades
assigned by regular faculty less valid? ==>> information in stem does not talk about this
(E) Are regular faculty members in favor of
giving graduate assistants some teaching
responsibility? ==>> Question is not about teachning responsibilities, but about grading responsibilities, hence irrelevant

Should be B as there is answer for this in the question that some are interested in maintaining full time faculty interest in undergraduate program
