The argument is about how much money we can save if distance learning is observed instead of on-site learning.

Option A - correct
This can correctly be inferred from the sentence because it is very much about the center point of the argument. It can be decided from the argument itself.

Option B - incorrect
The main argument doesn't explicitly say if distance learning is convenient for the students but it says it is cost-effective, so we can infer the convenience it can provide.

Option C - incorrect
This statement has already been stated in the main argument. It is just repeating what the argument has stated earlier itself.

Option D - incorrect
This option is out of scope. There's no enough information from the argument to state that most types of instructions can be effectively conducted in an online setting.

Option E - incorrect
This is entirely not part of the argument. The main argument doesn't talk about the existence of computers and internet access being available to people.
