Parents who wish to provide a strong foundation for the musical ability of their children should provide them with a good musical education. Since formal instruction is often a part a good musical education, parents who wish to provide this strong foundation need to ensure that their children receive formal instruction.

The reasoning is most vulnerable to criticism on the grounds that it fails to consider that
(A) parents might not be the only source of a child’s musical education
(B) some children might not be interested in receiving a strong foundation for their musical ability
(C) there are many examples of people with formal instruction whose musical ability is poor
(D) formal instruction might not always be a part of a good musical education
(E) some children might become good musicians even if they have not had good musical educations

Please explain your answers.

Please explain your answers.


D is the only one that appears relevent here.

A: Irrelevant
B: irrelevant
C: again irrelevant
E: its not about good musicians. Its about a strong foundation.


D: "Since formal instruction is often a part a good musical education, parents who wish to provide this strong foundation need to ensure that their children receive formal instruction."

formal instruction is often, but NOT always.

I just pick up C based on my experience:
Formal instruction --> Good education, therefore, not good education --> not formal instruction.
The only C talks about this structure, however it fails to follow, then, I conclude it's vulnerable to criticism.
