Most students arrive at [college] using, “discrete, concrete and absolute categories to understand people, knowledge and values.” These students live with a dualistic view, seeing “the world in polar terms of we-right-good vs. other-wrong-bad.” These students cannot acknowledge the existence of more than one point of view toward any issue. And because these absolutes are assumed by or imposed on the individual from external authority, they cannot be personally substantiated or authenticated by experience. (…………….)


a.  They gather personal experience into a coherent frame work, abstract principles to guide actions and use these principles to discipline and govern their thoughts and actions. 
b.  They appreciate authority for its expertise, using it to defend their own generalizations. In addition, they accept or reject ostensible authority after systematically evaluating its validity.  
c.  These students strive for the generalizations of their authorities. An eye for an eye! Capital punishment is apt justice for murder. The Bible says so. 
d.  However, most students break through the dualistic stage to another equally frustrating stage – multiplicity, where the student sees variety of ways to deal with any problem.

a.  They gather personal experience into a coherent frame work, abstract principles to guide actions and use these principles to discipline and govern their thoughts and actions.  (this point says that they govern any things by thier own principle which they take gather from their own experience but last line of paragraph says ,views in thier mind is imposed ,they cannot use their own experience)


b.  They appreciate authority for its expertise, using it to defend their own generalizations. In addition, they accept or reject ostensible authority after systematically evaluating its validity.   (see the bold part author has not talked about this ,so elimianting it)


c.  These students strive for the generalizations of their authorities. An eye for an eye! Capital punishment is apt justice for murder. The Bible says so.  (it may be ,having similar outlook as bibble ,this line genralized the entire paragrph or you can say conclude it)


d.  However, most students break through the dualistic stage to another equally frustrating stage – multiplicity, where the student sees variety of ways to deal with any problem. 

(it may be ,contrary to what author has presented about people having dulaistic nature)

so going through the flow of paragraph i will go with c as author has not mention anything about any other stage .

@Dagny Mam /tgites please check it..

thank yousmile

  Hi,
the correct answer is C.
here, the author is negative about the absolutes on the individual by the external authority so, A and D can be removed . both of them end in a positive conclusion.
also option B states that "they appreciate" , this cannot be the starting to the concluding statement which has to be negative.
hence, option C.
