Parent: It is as misleading to conclude that decreasing attendance in after-school extra classes shows that our children’s academic requirements are finally being fully met in regularly-scheduled classes as it is to reason that teachers do not get negative ratings from students because students respect and admire teachers. The real cause behind the decreasing attendance is that the same teachers who teach the regular classes teach the after-school ones, and students don’t like the methodology used by these teachers in the first place.

The parent’s statements, if true, best support which of the following conclusions?

A. The reason teachers do not get a negative rating is that the students are scared about the repercussions their votes could have on their academic assessments.
B. Teaching methodologies across schools need to be evaluated to best cater to the students’ needs and requirements.
C. The management of the school wants to cover up for their lack of an effective teaching methodology by implementing the rating system.
D. The students’ academic needs are not being fulfilled in the regular classes.
E. If the school changes its teaching methodology in regular classes, most of the students will be motivated to attend the free after-school extra classes

Got to D,E Picked the wrong one as usual.
Why is D right? E says the corollary - if the teachers are good, students would attend the evening classes.
D) says "The students’ academic needs are not being fulfilled in the regular classes." - isn't this the premise? ["It is as misleading to conclude that decreasing attendance in after-school extra classes shows that our children’s academic requirements are finally being fully met in regularly-scheduled classes]

would love a detailed explanation!

E is wrong because even if the school changes its methodology there is no indication that this new methodology will be liked by the students, let alone getting 'most' of them to attend the extra classes.

why "D" is right? it's been clearly mentioned in the statement that parents claim children’s academic requirements are not finally being fully met in regularly-scheduled classes. why conclude the same statement again?

E is wrong because it uses the word 'Free', which is not a part of the argument

C. The management of the school wants to cover up for their lack of an effective teaching methodology by implementing the rating system. - No cover up is talked about in the passage
D. The students’ academic needs are not being fulfilled in the regular classes. -Correct
E. If the school changes its teaching methodology in regular classes, most of the students will be motivated to attend the free after-school extra classes -What will happen in future is out of scope.
