    Do you think books for children

    Liz :
    - Do you think books for children should avoid
    social problems and unpleasant subjects?
    Clare :
    - No, I don't. Do you?
    Liz :
    -----
    Clare :
    - In fact, they can often face it better than adults
    can!

    A) Certainly not! The children I know are quite capable of facing reality.
    B) I'm not sure. I don't like to read about unpleasant situations myself!
    C) No. But I think the best children's books are the imaginative ones.
    D) You know I'm very fond of fairy tales, and there are a lot of problems and evil characters in them.
    E) Yes I do. Let the children live in a good world for as long as possible.


    Key is A, agree?

    Yes, I agree too - "A"
    The main idea here is related to the pronouns they and it.
    The only possible answer is "A", and then the pronouns they and it refer to the children and reality respectively.

    Claire. No, I don't. Do you? In fact, they can often face it better than adults
    can!

    A. Certainly not! The children I know are quite capable of facing reality.

    Is this statement spoken by Liz or Claire?
