Music education should be offered to children at an early age as part of the school syllabus. Psychologists working with children have found that interaction with sound and music at early stages of development can stimulate thought in ways that greatly enhance learning skills. In the same study, it was noted that since playing music involves active and passive coordination, and is usually enjoyed by children, it creates a suitable setting for intelligence development. However, in most schools, extra-curriculum activities are largely sports-related, with music being an elective subject.

Which of the following, if true, supports the argument's conclusion?

A) Music can be used in therapy for adults with mental disorders.
B) Although sport mostly focuses on hand-eye coordination, it also develops reasoning and social skills.
C) It has been proven that cooperative group dynamics, even in first-grade classrooms, improves learning, and that music can create such dynamics.
D) Music was found to have the strongest beneficial effect on young pupils when it is taught on a one-on-one basis.
E) Since music is generally not an inherent part of the school syllabus, professional input and a great deal of effort will be needed to form the appropriate materials.

Premise: Psychologists working with "children" have found that "interaction with sound and music at the early stages of development can stimulate thought in ways that greatly enhance learning skills".

Conclusion: Playing music involves active and passive coordination, and it creates a suitable setting for intelligence development.

Option A - Incorrect:
This answer choice doesn't provide any relevance to the subject of discussion at hand. We are not concerned about adults, neither are we concerned about music being a therapy for adults with mental disorders.

Option B - Incorrect:
This option is too general as it focuses on sports and not on music specifically.

Option C - Correct:
This option proves a point (-cooperative group dynamic improves learning-) that strongly supports the passage argument's conclusion ("playing music involves active and passive coordination, and it does create a suitable setting for intelligence development in kids).

Option D - Incorrect:
This option validates that music has the STRONGEST beneficial effect on young pupils when it is taught on a "one-on-one basis". However, it doesn't align with the passage argument's conclusion that validated that "playing music involves active and passive cordination" and not only on one-on-one interaction.

Option E - Incorrect:
This answer choice is out of scope

I think this is a great approach and the right decision to start this training at an early age. Moreover, then new items will be added and started again it'll be more difficult. Sometimes I also have problems during the educational process, then I turn to free college papers online. Examples of other guys' work give me not only inspiration for my own writing but also new ideas.
