Hi @jp013501,

Thanks for the question! So we’re asked here for a logical counter that parent P can make to parent Q’s objection. So taking a look at (A), it tells us that when technology advances rapidly, regular training is necessary to keep one’s skill at a level proficient enough to deal with the society in which one lives. Here’s the problem with (A). It talks about “regular” training being necessary. Now take a look at Parent P’s argument. Parent P doesn’t talk at all about “regular” training; Parent P just says that computers should be introduced in kindergarten, and computer languages should be required in high school. But that isn’t the same thing as “regular training.” And Parent Q also isn’t arguing against “regular training.” So (A) doesn’t even support parent P’s argument, and can’t be the correct answer.

Hope this helps! Feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.
