    Content editor Aaron A. is editing the article "Zebra Painting Schools in Anystate with Course Information." The article covers eleven schools: the ten largest private non-profit & public schools, plus Mammalia College, which is a small school.  Aaron has heard of Mammalia College: it's widely recognized as one of the country's premier zebra painting schools.  Which option is correct?
    • A. 

      The most important thing is to follow the guideline precisely, so Aaron should delete Mammalia College from the article.

    • B. 

      The most important thing is to serve the reader, and this section could be very useful to the reader, so Aaron can leave it in the article. In other articles, Aaron will watch out for other premier small schools and grade the writer down if they aren't included!

    • C. 

      The most important thing is to serve the reader, and this section could be very useful to the reader, so Aaron can leave it in the article. However, since the guideline doesn't say to include premier small schools, it would also have been fine if Mammalia College wasn't included.
