Educator: Like many other difficult pursuits, music requires intense study and practice from an early age in order for one to become proficient. But many school music programs encourage only children who demonstrate early aptitude to continue studying music, while children who do not appear especially musical are directed towards other activities. Having learned to think of themselves as musically inept, these children do not devote any time to music, and thus some of them deprive themselves of the opportunity to develop latent but potentially significant musical talent.

The educator's statements, if true, would best support which of the following conclusions?

A)Music education should not devote special attention to talented students.
B)Everyone has the potential to learn music.
C)The number of proficient adult musicians is less than it could be.
D)Children are particularly sensitive to criticism from adults.
E)All children should study music.

A)Music education should not devote special attention to talented students. - contradicts the argument.
B)Everyone has the potential to learn music. - outside the scope
C)The number of proficient adult musicians is less than it could be. - will go for it. If more children with latent talent learn music, number of proficient adult musicians will be more.
D)Children are particularly sensitive to criticism from adults. - does not relate to the argument.
E)All children should study music.- does not relate to the argument.

some children's music talent is latent. so the talent talent isn't seen by the music school programmers. But if they are nurtured they could be proficient adult musicians. that is what C means.
