In choice A, what does they stand for - problems or rural migrant workers. Isn't there an ambiguity there.

hello

they refers to the subject of the sentence and the subject is ''rural workers'' and also problems are an entity and they can refered to as ''these'' rather than ''they''

Have fun

thanks for that info about 'they'. Can anyone tell me why option C is wrong.

A question that is irrelevant in assessing the problems that rural migrant workers face is whether they are better off materially than the urban working poor.

Thanks.
