Educator: Traditional classroom education is ineffective because education in such an environment is not truly a social process and only social processes can develop students’ insights. In the traditional classroom, the teacher acts from outside the group and interaction between teachers and students is rigid and artificial.

The educator’s conclusion follows logically if which one of the following is assumed?

(A) Development of insight takes place only if genuine education also occurs.
(B) Classroom education is effective if the interaction between teachers and students is neither rigid nor artificial.
(C) All social processes involve interaction that is neither rigid nor artificial.
(D) Education is not effective unless it leads to the development of insight.
(E) The teacher does not act from outside the group in a nontraditional classroom.

C is connecting the the social processes with interaction that are neither rigid nor Artificial. So in a way it is supporting the Conclusion right?.

Thanks.

The conclusion is that Traditional classroom education is ineffective. Other statements are premises. Option C is linking premise in statement 2 with premise in statement 1. However thats not the aim here. Our aim is to link a missing portion with conclusion. D is doing that work here. Its like, A is because of B and only B leads to C. Hence we assumed that A happens only because C does as stated in option D.

2. interaction between teachers and students is rigid and artificial, then it is not a social process.
3. Traditional classroom education can not develop students’ insights.
4. truly a social process is effective.
5. Traditional classroom education is ineffective if it does not develop students’ insights.

The educator’s conclusion follows logically if which one of the following is assumed? --- we need to find an assumption The educator’s conclusion follows

(A) Development of insight takes place only if genuine education also occurs. --- What is genuine education?
(B) Classroom education is effective if the interaction between teachers and students is neither rigid nor artificial. --- yes true but what if the teacher acts from outside the group. if will be effective then ?
(C) All social processes involve interaction that is neither rigid nor artificial. --- not affecting the conclusion.
(D) Education is not effective unless it leads to the development of insight. --- seems right. Can education be effective if it does not lead to the development of insight. Correct one.
(E) The teacher does not act from outside the group in a nontraditional classroom. ---- nope.
