### HideShow timer Statistics

In a study of the relationship between aggression and television viewing in nursery school children, many interesting interactions among family styles, aggression, and television viewing were found. High aggression occurred in both high-viewing and low-viewing children and this seemed to be related to parental lifestyle. High-achieving, competitive, middle-class parents, whose children did not watch much television, had more aggressive children than parents who planned their lives in an organized, child-centered way, which included larger amounts of television viewing.

Which one of the following conclusions is best supported by the passage?

(A) Low levels of television viewing often lead to high levels of aggression among children.

(B) The level of aggression of a child cannot be predicted from levels of television viewing alone.

(C) If high-achieving, competitive parents were more child-centered, their children would be less aggressive.

(D) High levels of television viewing can explain high levels of aggression among children only when the parents are not child-centered.

(E) Parental lifestyle is less important than the amount of television viewing in determining the aggressiveness of children.

I think it is C
...many interesting interactions among family styles, aggression, and television viewing were found. High aggression occurred in both high-viewing and low-viewing children ...
this seems to suggest that TV alone is not responsible...
in my limited experience and opinion if the question was about what the conclusion is then B would make sense but what conclusion(/other conclusion/s) are supported by the paragraph?
then this would be C

Rupstar,
In the terminology of Princeton Review: Choice C : means you are thinking too hard. ETS likes to keep simple direct conclusions.\

(B) The level of aggression of a child cannot be predicted from levels of television viewing alone.
- This is best supported. Apart from television viewing, the passage cites references of parental lifestyl.

The only thing we can conclude with absolute confidence is that any one factor alone cannot predict children's aggressiveness. Therefore (B) is right. All of the other choices cannot be supported with absolute confidence.

'B' appears to be the best. Nothing else can be concluded.

Only B are definitely right

this again is another of those sub-500 level questions which 99/100 people get right . but suppose one has to do it in less than 75 sec than it becomes interesting
