### HideShow timer Statistics

Two groups of students- one from Poland and the other from Nigeria- were asked to attend one school semester in Australia. The Polish students were asked to study in a rural area, while the Nigerian students were put up in a city. The knowledge of Australian culture acquired by Polish students was found to be higher than that acquired by the Nigerian students. The researcher concluded that interacting with locals enhances the ability to learn about cultures.

The researchers’ conclusion logically depends on which of the following assumptions?

A- The rural areas offer greater opportunities to interact with the locals.

B- The academic value of the programs offered by the two schools was similar.

C- International exposure in Australia intrigued the students to learn about the local culture.

D- The Polish students were more inclined towards knowing the local culture.

E- International exposure in urban setting is likely to intrigue foreign students about local culture.

How A..?? Rural people are making re interactive is fact that can be concluded from last line of passage...
i think ans should be B as author assume that the academic value given by both school is similar so that Knowledge aquired by polish students is by interaction with local people

Negate B. You get that the program was biased. Even if the program was biased research could conclude that interactions led to better understanding.

Hope this helps.

Only A makes sense.

Let us negate A - The rural areas do not offer greater opportunities to interact with the locals.

Conclusion : The researcher concluded that interacting with locals enhances the ability to learn about cultures.

If there is lesser opportunity to interact with the locals then there is no difference between interactions of city and rural areas.

This way conclusion falls apart.
