Teachers should not do anything to cause their students to lose respect for them. And students can sense when someone is trying to hide his or her ignorance. Therefore, a teacher who does not know the answer to a question a student has asked should not pretend to know the answer.

The conclusion is properly drawn if which one of the following is assumed?


(A) A teacher cannot be effective unless he or she retains the respect of students.

(B) Students respect honesty above all else.

(C) Students’ respect for a teacher is independent of the amount of knowledge they attribute to that teacher.

(D) Teachers are able to tell when students respect them.

(E) Students lose respect for teachers whenever they sense that the teachers are trying to hide their ignorance.

Correct answer: E

(A) A teacher cannot be effective unless he or she retains the respect of students. Not talking about the effectiveness.

(B) Students respect honesty above all else. Above all else is extreme

(C) Students’ respect for a teacher is independent of the amount of knowledge they attribute to that teacher. Not talking about the amount of knowledge.

(D) Teachers are able to tell when students respect them. Out of scope

(E) Students lose respect for teachers whenever they sense that the teachers are trying to hide their ignorance. Correct

IMO
Contenders here are C and E.

Negating C doesn't make the conclusion fall apart and Negating E weakens the Conclusion.Hence, E is the Answer.

Kudos if this helps!
