DISCUSSION: The author doesn’t think the normal method is good enough. However, lines 17-19 show that the author thinks traditional ethics courses have some value.
The passage is critical of ethics training. So it’s weird to see that the most positive answer is correct. But the wrong answers are too negative: the author doesn’t hate traditional training.
- Lines 17-19 show that the author thinks that traditional courses have some value.
- Same as A. One effect of traditional training is that medical students get conceptual ethical clarity.
- ‘Indifference’ towards the effects? The author clearly cares; they want medical students to learn empathy and ethics.
- The author approves of some of the effects, lines 17-19 provide an example.
- CORRECT. Lines 17-19 show partial approval of effects: students get conceptual clarity. But the author clearly disapproves of the method (abstract courses). They think that courses using narrative literature are required as well.
