    • D.

      Learning to read and write in nursery can cause problems for teachers in primary schools.

    Correct Answer
    B. Early learning doesn’t necessarily benefit children academically later.
    Explanation
    The answer "Early learning doesn’t necessarily benefit children academically later" is supported by the statement that nursery education should be free for parents who want it. This implies that the speaker believes that providing free nursery education does not guarantee academic benefits for children in the long run. Additionally, the statement about opportunities to interact with other children being important suggests that social development may be prioritized over academic achievement in early education. Lastly, the mention of reading and writing causing problems for primary school teachers implies that early academic focus may not be beneficial.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "it is more beneficial for children to play than study."
