Pointing to “An Essay on Woman” (1753) as reflecting a shift in view, Woody also claimed that practical education for females had many advocates before the Revolution.

Dear Moderators
GMATNinjaTwo, workout, SajjadAhmad, GMATNinja, u1983, Gnpth

Could someone please explain question 2?
I had opted for choice D because the passage mentioned virtue was to be instilled not only by churches and schools, but by families, where the mother’s role was crucial

DarkHorse2019 :

Option D is wrong because ;

1. It says "The family assuming many of the functions previously performed by schools and churches".

The passage discusses only one function "To educate women so that they can to raise politically virtuous sons". Previously this act was done by schools and churches, but in the mid-1980’s "women's also added to full the role "republican motherhood".

Therefore, when the passage says "many of the functions", it option D leads to the wrong direction.

Option C is more close to the passage and hence the correct answer.
