OK, here's a multiple choice question to contemplate. But, please be reminded as is usually the case with multiple choice questions, although there may be multiple right answers, only one will be accepted as the "correct right answer."

 

Question:

It's well known that books reading is "losing its attractiveness" among high school students. Given the information in this article, we should _______________ for students' declining interest in reading.

A. blame technology

B. blame parents

C. blame teachers

D. blame schools

 

Yeah, well I suppose I am being a bit snarky. But, perhaps there is a lesson in scapegoating somewhere in this article.
