### HideShow timer Statistics

Children of alcoholics are much more likely to become alcoholics than are children of nonalcoholics. The likelihood varies depending on which parent is alcoholic and is much greater if both are alcoholic. This pattern holds true even if children are separated from their alcoholic parent[s] at birth.

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

A.Children of non-alcoholics do not become alcoholics.
B.Fathers influence their children’s alcoholic tendencies more than mothers do.
C.A tendency toward alcoholism can be at least partially determined by genetics.
D.Environment has little influence on alcoholism.
E.Because it is inherited, alcoholism is difficult to treat.

Do you have any idea which is the correct answer?

C - A tendency toward alcoholism can be at least partially determined by genetics.

It can be concluded from passage - ' The likelihood varies depending on which parent is alcoholic and is much greater if both are alcoholic.'
