Which of the following pieces of information would be most useful in evaluating the validity of the conclusion above?

B. Any differences among parents in the standard used to judge an item as frivolous

C. The educational background of the child development specialists who made this observation

There are 2 terms in this argument that needs an objective definition "large allowance" and "frivolous". Any answer that gives explanation to these 2 terms would be important to evaluate the argument.
B is the correct option.
