Thanks for your response. In that one, the author provides that psychologists have figured out how to get rid of nightmares in adults, and that children who have nightmares are particularly likely to become adults with nightmares.
The author. as you correctly noted, concludes that psychologists should try to identify nightmare-prone kids to teach them the methods for replacing their bad dreams with good ones.
A strengthen question follows, so the correct choice will be the one that, when added to the premises in the stimulus, strengthens the author's conclusion. Answer choice C fits that bill:
Premise: Psychologists have figured out how to get rid of adult nightmares
Premise: Nightmare prone kids are more likely to have nightmares as adults.
Answer C: Psychologists should do everything they can to minimize adult nightmares.
Strengthened Conclusion: Thus psychologists should try to identify nightmare prone children to teach them how to replace nightmares with nice dreams.
I hope that's helpful; please let me know whether that clears this one up--thanks!
