Psychologist: Phonemic awareness, or the knowledge that spoken language can be broken into component sounds, is essential for learning to read an alphabetic language. But one also needs to learn how sounds are symbolically represented by means of letters; otherwise, phonemic awareness will not translate into the ability to read an alphabetic language. Yet many children who are taught by the whole-language method, which emphasizes the ways words sound, learn to read alphabetic languages.

Which one of the following can be properly inferred from the psychologist's statements?

(A) The whole-language method invariably succeeds in teaching awareness of how spoken language can be broken into component sounds.

(B) When the whole-language method succeeds in teaching someone how to represent sounds by means of letters, that person acquires the ability to read an alphabetic
language.

(C) Those unable to read an alphabetic language lack both phonemic awareness and the knowledge of how sounds are symbolically represented.

(D) Some children who are taught by the whole- language method are not prevented from learning how sounds are represented by means of letters.

(E) The whole-language method succeeds in teaching many children how to represent sounds symbolically by means of letters.

This is an inference question.

POE.

A) The whole-language method invariably succeeds in teaching awareness of how spoken language can be broken into component sounds.--A sounds ok. Will come back here

(B) When the whole-language method succeeds in teaching someone how to represent sounds by means of letters, that person acquires the ability to read an alphabetic
language.--We don't really have given how WL method succeds. plus we know WL methods makes use of words not letters.

(C) Those unable to read an alphabetic language lack both phonemic awareness and the knowledge of how sounds are symbolically represented. --Not given about those who are unable to read.

(D) Some children who are taught by the whole- language method are not prevented from learning how sounds are represented by means of letters...Yes this can be inferred. because they how to learn words, they may have learnt how to learn letters.

(E) The whole-language method succeeds in teaching many children how to represent sounds symbolically by means of letters.
No...same as B.

in A and D that I kept.
In A, we know whole-language method makes these words. how it succeeds through this we have not given. A is out.

D is more convincing and fitting to the logic of learning through WL methods and also making use of letters.

So D is the best we can do here.
