Professor: You should read a wide variety of fiction. Books are full of characters that face many problems in their lives. Reading about those problems and seeing how characters deal with them will prepare you for similar problems in your own life

Student: But there are just so many books. The problems I see in a character's life are not even close to the problems I see in my life. Does reading about such problems help?

Which one of the following responses from the professor will ease the student's anxiety?

A. Reading a vast number of fiction books ensures understanding of all regular problems.
B. The problems suggested in the books will be encountered by the student in future.
C. The problem-solving approach developed through reading these books improves one's problem-solving ability in general.
D. The problems presented in such books are generally faced in real life by most people the same age as the student.
E. Even if it doesnt practically apply, the knowledge is good.

my take is C - The problem-solving approach developed through reading these books improves one's problem-solving ability in general.

Even if the problems are different from the ones faced in everyday life, the problem solving approach could be applied.

Which one of the following responses from the professor will ease the student's anxiety?

A. Reading a vast number of fiction books ensures understanding of all regular problems. Question say wide variety not vast numbers.

B. The problems suggested in the books will be encountered by the student in future.. We are not concerned

C. The problem-solving approach developed through reading these books improves one's problem-solving ability in general. Good one.

D. The problems presented in such books are generally faced in real life by most people the same age as the student. We are concerned about students not people.

E. Even if it doesn't practically apply, the knowledge is good. Too general statement.
