Time and time again it has been shown that students who attend colleges with low faculty/student ratios get the most well-rounded education. As a result, when my children are ready to attend college, I'll be sure they attend a school with a very small student population.

Which of the following, if true, identifies the greatest flaw in the reasoning above?

A. A low faculty/student ratio is the effect of a well-rounded education, not its source.

B. Intelligence should be considered the result of childhood environment, not advanced education.

C. A very small student population does not by itself, ensure a low faculty/student ratio.

D. Parental desires and preferences rarely determines a child's choice of a college or university.

E. Students must take advantage of the low faculty/student ratio by intentionally choosing small classes.

OA later after discussion..

The argument talks about faculty/student ratios and the person states that "Ill be sure they attend a school with a very small student population." The comparision is incorrect.

Option (C) clearly points this out.

C - doesnot talk about ratio being low. it just says student population is less

OA is C, ofcourse C doesnot talk about ratio being low, but it clearly addresses the flaw in the conclusion.

C, low student body but also a low number of professors might equal to high student/prof ratio

Question asks us to find the 'flaw in the reason'.

[Reason] - students who attend colleges {f/s} -> students get most well rounded education.

[Conclusion] - children send to school with low student population.

Here, we need to find flaw in the reason and not in the conclusion. The only option which highlights this is 'B'.
