Question:

What conclusion can clearly be drawn from the data in the table?

A The more education a person has, the more likely the person is to vote in a U.S. presidential election.
Explaination

The table shows that people with more education are more likely to vote. We can’t make any comparisons involving numbers of people voting in each group ( Most voters in U.S. presidential elections have some college or a college degree and More people with college degrees are voting in U.S. presidential elections than people with only high school (or GED) diplomas are voting) because the table doesn’t give these numbers. For example, 26.8 percent of the people with only an eighth grade education voted in 2000, not 26.8 percent of the people who voted had an eighth-grade education. Answers (People who have more education are smarter and better able to get involved in democratic government) involve opinions not supported by the data.
