Student or Learner
Music study enriches all the learning―in reading, math, and other subjects―that children do at school. ①It also helps to develop language and communication skills. ②As children grow, musical training continues to help them develop the discipline and self-confidence needed to achieve in school. ③Studying while listening to music causes students to have a difficult time learning the material. ④The day*to*day practice in music, along with setting goals and reaching them, develops self*discipline, patience, and responsibility. ⑤That discipline carries over to other areas, such as doing homework and other school projects on time and keeping materials organized.
Which does the underlined mean?
the discipline and self-confidence needed to achieve in school

2. students need the discipline and self-confidence to achieve (something like academic performance) in school
#2 is the right answer. In the above context, "achieve" is an intransitive verb meaning "excel."
