I need help with one question. Read the following excerpt from an argumentative essay. Answer the question that follows. Critics might say that smart phones in the classroom cause too many distractions. A 2009 article in Education Magazine made just such a claim. Although cell phones can certainly cause distractions, current research suggests that teachers and students are putting phones to better use. A 2013 Educator Insider poll reveals that 67% of high school instructors now encourage students to use phones in the classroom setting. Students without phones are actually at a disadvantage in the classroom. The poll lists Internet access, spell checks, and collaboration as three key uses of smart phones in an educational setting. What is the counterclaim the author introduces to the argument? A. Cell phones should be allowed in the classroom. B. Cell phones in the classroom cause too many distractions. C. Students without phones are actually at a disadvantage in the classroom. D. 67% of high school instructors now encourage students to use phones in the classroom. (Sorry, I'm new to Open Study.)

    I had to update the question. I accidentally posted the wrong one.

    I know it is not C or D. I've already tried those and they are both wrong.

    I would personally say that it is A because the essay shows proof of why they should be allowed on the class room.

    I think that is B. I just don't know if the question is talking about the author introducing the opponent's counterclaim or their own.
