Football Coach: Like any other challenging sport, football requires intense study and practice in order for one to become proficient. But many football programs encourage only children who demonstrate early talent to continue practicing football, while children who are not especially talented in football are directed towards other activities. Having learned to think of themselves as inept in football, these children do not devote sufficient time to play football and thus deprive themselves of the opportunity to develop a latent talent.

The football coach’s statements, if true, would best support which of the following conclusions?

A) Football programs should not devote special attention to talented students.
B) Children are particularly sensitive to criticism from adults.
C) Everyone has the potential to learn football.
D) Talent is not always apparent at an early age.
E) All children should be coached in football.

Hi
I was tied between C and D, but went to select D as it discusses about talent and age. The main point of the argument is not ot get carried away by the early signs of a child football prodigy. An outstanding footballer can only attain such a feet by the dint of hard work...
Option C discusses about "Everyone...." which i think is not correct.

My Explanation:

We need to draw conclusion based on coach's statements. He states children who show talent should be encouraged, while others deprive themselves of the opportunity to pursue football and chose other things to do. The correct answer will be based on these statements only. The correct answer could be a restatement of a premise or a logical outcome of a combination of two or more statements.

A) Football programs should not devote special attention to talented students.

This choice is beyond the scope of the argument; the stimulus has not stated anything about special attention to talented students.

B) Children are particularly sensitive to criticism from adults.

Irrelevant. The children are not being criticized, just the ones with talent are being encouraged.

C) Everyone has the potential to learn football.

A very generalized statement. The stimulus says about coach and children; Everyone is a broad term which will include children and adults, whereas our stimulus is concerned with children. If I had replaced "everyone" to "children" then it would have been a much closer answer choice. But even after this change D would be correct because it is talking about early age and thus a more accurate conclusion. It would have made the question highly debatable.

D) Talent is not always apparent at an early age.

Correct It logically follows the statements in the stimulus. In fact it is a restatement of the last sentence.

E) All children should be coached in football.

You can straight away reject this choice. No claim is made to coach all the students.
