In a study of the relationship between aggression and television viewing in nursery school children, many interesting interactions among family styles, aggression, and television viewing were found. High aggression occurred in both high-viewing and low viewing children and this seemed to be related to parental lifestyle. High-achieving, competitive, middle-class parents, whose children did not watch much television, had more aggressive children than
parents who planned their lives in an organized, child-centered way, which included larger amounts of television viewing.

Which one of the following conclusions is best supported by the passage?

(A) Low levels of television viewing often lead to high levels of aggression among children.

(B) The level of aggression of a child cannot be predicted from levels of television viewing alone.

(C) If high-achieving, competitive, parents were more child-centered, their children would be less aggressive.

(D) High levels of television viewing can explain high levels of aggression among children only when the parents are not child-centered.

(E) Parental lifestyle is less important than the amount of television viewing in determining the aggressiveness of children.

The argument says : Relationship between aggression and Television viewing was found.

1) High aggression occurred in both High and Low viewing.
2) Parental Lifestyle is also responsible for this.

(A) Low levels of television viewing often lead to high levels of aggression among children. This is too broad.

(B) The level of aggression of a child cannot be predicted from levels of television viewing alone. : Correct, we discussed there are two reasons mentioned. So, how could it be only 1 factor alone.

(C) If high-achieving, competitive, parents were more child-centered, their children would be less aggressive. No, had this occurred, that would have occurred. Incorrect. We know what they do as high achieving and as competitive but now what if they were child centered.

(D) High levels of television viewing can explain high levels of aggression among children only when the parents are not child-centered. : Again too broad. May be parents are child centered still they are aggressive,

(E) Parental lifestyle is less important than the amount of television viewing in determining the aggressiveness of children. We cannot make such comparisons on or won unless we have any such information in the passage.

Since this is inference question , most logical answer which " must be true" is B that levels of aggression cannot be predicted from TV viewing alone. But my question is about C, can inference answer have " If " in it ?

 Child Agression -1. Relationship with Child Agression Vs Television viewing High Agression occurred in both -(a) TV High-viewing and (b) TV Low viewing2. Relationship with Child Agression Vs Family stylesHigh-achieving, competitive, middle-class parents ( Who Do not watch TV ) > Organized, child-centered way ( Watched TV)

Since , both High TV Viewing & Low TV viewing results in child agression it cant alone be used to predict child agression ( B) follows from the passage...

(C) Talks about a possibility - Which doesn't directly flow from the stimulus

Moreover, we are not sure about the result of the action proposed in the option, it can result in less aggression/more agression...

hence , I wdon't like (C) and the other options...

Yes - a cause-effect relation ( if...then clause) can also be inferred. However in this case, C cannot be inferred because it is not known which of the 5 factors or their combination (organized, child-centered, high-achieving, competitive, middle-class) contributes to the aggression of the children. It is poossible that if the parent is competitive, no mater what, the child will become aggressive. Thus C cannot be deduced.

From the stem - Low and High level both lead to aggressive behaviour.

Parental lifestyle seemed to be linked to the behaviour.

The relationship and extent is not stated explicitly. only B justifies.
