Question Stats:

83% (01:06) correct 16% (01:05) wrong based on 36 sessions
The headmaster at Leawood Day School noticed that scores on math tests were lower this year than in previous years. This year, all students took math courses during the first period of the school day; in years past, they had taken math during the final period of the day. Reasoning that the students perform better on math tests when they are fully awake, the headmaster concluded that test scores would be higher if math classes were moved to the end of the day.

The headmaster’s reasoning depends upon which of the following assumptions?

(A) It would be possible to reconfigure the school’s schedule to accommodate having math classes in the afternoon.
(B) Several schools similar to Leawood Day School hold math classes in the afternoon.
(C) The quality of the teaching has little bearing on test scores.
(D) This year the math department started using new, unfamiliar curricular materials.
(E) Students are more likely to be fully awake during the final period of the day than they are during the first period of the day.

I was stuck between (C) and (E). I finally chose (E) but, would like to understand why (C) cannot be an answer for this question.

Can someone please help.

I have noticed you struggle a lot with CR.

it is a difficult part of the test to tackle. I understand you. However, you must improve to have no rooms for error.

An assumption question actually is a sort of inference question with the difference that the first one is unstated in the passage but in somehow resemble what the passage itself acts, in a way or another (this in a nutshell); inference instead is a type of question through which one of the sentences of the stimulus is said in other words.

Reasoning that the students perform better on math tests when they are fully awake,


Nothing in the passage is mentioned about the quality, so it CANNOT be the right answer.

Hope this helps.

Regards
