A writer presents the following claim and counterclaim: Claim: The school cafeteria should start a composting program Counterclaim: Composting is too messy Which answer most clearly connects the claim to the counterclaim? Those opposed to the idea of composting say it's very messy, but a lot of the food and trash gets thrown on the floor and the ground anyway, so wouldn't composting be a better idea? School officials complain that collecting compost would create unnecessary mess in the cafeteria, yet we already collect aluminum and plastic in special bins and no one complains of this. Since we already recycle at our school, why should it be so difficult to recycle our food, too, in a composting program that would benefit the environment as well? The administrative staff doesn't want to have a composting program because they claim it's messy, but we pay cafeteria workers to clean up all of the messy food left on the tables.

KingPizza:

well let's see......can you eliminate any of the choices? Because there is at least one choice we could toss right away

kekeman:

The last one

KingPizza:

yes, because the counterclaim is clear in that, but the claim isn't really mentioned well in there it never talks about people who think composting is a good idea so D is incorrect

kekeman:

Yes i feel like the answer is the first option

KingPizza:

yes that's what I would think it's A because it mentions both the claim and counterclaim well but I can't say I'm 100% sure it's correct but I think it is

kekeman:

Ok thanks

KingPizza:

sorry if I'm wrong though

kekeman:

All good
