Students who perform average work in school sometimes receive higher grades than they actually deserve. These students are able to convince teachers that they truly enjoy the subject matter, are stimulated by the lectures, or have a personal interest in the instructor. These students must be careful, however, because exaggerated efforts may backfire.

If the statements above are true, which of the following draws the most reliable conclusion from the paragraph?

(A) Students are dishonest when it comes to grades.
(B) Teachers may give grades to students for reasons other than classroom performance.
(C) Good students will seldom resort to trickery in achieving good grades.
(D) Teachers want to help their students to excel in the classroom.
(E) The perceptions of average students are important in achieving good grades.

Quite straight forward i should say.
Average students perform better due to some reasons other than studying hard:
1. Convincing teachers by showing interest in the subject
2. Showing personal interest in teacher as such

(A) Students are dishonest when it comes to grades. - dishonesty is not given anywhere.
(B) Teachers may give grades to students for reasons other than classroom performance. - Correct
(C) Good students will seldom resort to trickery in achieving good grades. - No mention of good students, hence out of scope.
(D) Teachers want to help their students to excel in the classroom. - Np mention of teachers helping students, out of scope.
(E) The perceptions of average students are important in achieving good grades - This might be a little difficult to eliminate. Note that it is not just perception of students that is enabling them to score more, it is actually the teacher who is giving them good grades due to perception and other reasons. Hence eliminated

+1 for option B.

We need to choose an option that must be true. If some students can get better grades for avg performance , then some teachers are awarding grades for reasons other than classroom performance.
