    A. Don't always make good decisions
    Explanation
    The author would probably agree that crowds of people don't always make good decisions because collective decision-making can be influenced by various factors such as groupthink, emotional contagion, and the diffusion of responsibility. When individuals are in a crowd, they may feel less accountable for their actions and be more prone to follow the behavior and opinions of others, even if they are not rational or well-informed. Therefore, the author would likely believe that crowds of people can sometimes make poor decisions.
