Leaving E, D and C are out for me because they are out of scope. Only A and B remain. A is too extreme for me. And I don't understand very well what informed decisions refers to. I choose B.

Personally I would sway the other way and say A.

Passage says tech education is getting worse. Younger people are more technologically illiterate. Issues for public referenda involve more and more aspects of technology.

Statement A says that to make informed decisions, many young people must learn more about technology. To me this looks very similar to what the passage is trying to say.

yes, I agree with you. Actually B is too general to be taken as a conclusion. A is my final choice.

I also go for A.

Since, the young generations between 18 and 24 lack tech education and these people have to have some tech knowledge for public referendum; most of them should go through some sort of technical know-how courses.

Betwee A and B??? A is correct.

A - is correct.
B - Public and Private education????
This can be misleading as there is a mention of 'formal education'.
C - Out of Scope.
D - Out of Scope.
E - Out of Scope.

they are tying the tech education with referenda in the stimulus.

The evidence indicates that students are technologically illiterate compare with older adults. IMO, the assumption is that older adults are able to participate public referenda. Therefore, if students are to participate on public referanda, then the students need to increase their knowledge on technology.
