An author claims that "Athletes caught using performance-enhancing drugs should be sentenced to prison." The author provides the following reason as support: A cool article in Kid's Sports Magazine says athletes are role models. I agree! It's heartbreaking for kids to learn that our heroes are cheaters. If players do steroids, send them to prison! They deserve to be punished for making us look stupid for cheering for them. Which choice best describes the reason the author provides?

    It is effective. It supports the claim clearly and logically. It is emotional. It expresses personal feelings that cannot be backed with research. It is irrelevant. It discusses a fact that is off topic and does not support the claim. It is unverified. It does not cite a source to show where the information was located.

    Okay, you're on the right way! Way to go! You're correct! Because the paragraph doesn't support the claim that "Athletes are roll models."
