QUESTION TYPE: Paradox
FACTS: Computers have helped elementary school students with math, helped a little with science and haven’t helped at all with reading and writing.
ANALYSIS: We need to either find an advantage for math or a disadvantage for reading when using a computer. Anything that doesn’t distinguish between subjects is irrelevant. Answer B gives us an advantage for math.
- This doesn’t explain anything. We want to know why arithmetic worked well on computers and reading didn’t.
- CORRECT. This gives us a reason why arithmetic works particularly well, compared to the other subjects.
- We’re talking about classrooms where the technology was used. It doesn’t matter what happened in classrooms where the teachers didn’t use it.
- This explains why computers might be used. It doesn’t explain why reading couldn’t be taught well using a computer.
- This makes the situation even more puzzling. Reading lessons didn’t go well despite the fact that there were more of them.
