According to the passage, which of the following statements is not true?
A. most Americans agree with the view that there are big differences between generations B. technology is one of the aspects that make the biggest difference between young and old.
C. grandparents feel uncomfortable with their children because their technology skills are better
D. The elderly in America are admired for their ethical values, work ethic and respect for others
Answer C is wrong because based on the information in sentence 2, paragraph 4:
The older generation is likely to be proud of the younger generation’s prowess in technology rather than to view it as a problem.
(The older generation can be very proud of the younger generation for their prowess in technology instead of seeing it as a problem.)
When it comes to generational differences, the majority of Americans may not agree on what they are. Although some may point to technological advances, others may focus on cultural shifts or generational values. In fact, a recent survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found that only a minority of Americans believe that generational differences are the main source of conflict between different age groups.
The survey asked Americans to identify the most significant differences between younger and older generations. The most popular response was “attitudes and values” (31%), followed by “technology” (27%), “life experience” (17%), and “economic circumstances” (15%). Only 4% of respondents said that “generational viewpoint” was the major difference between different age groups.
This survey suggests that the majority of Americans do not agree that generational viewpoint is the major difference between different age groups. Instead, most people seem to recognize that there are a variety of factors that contribute to differences between different age groups. It is important to remember that generational differences are not necessarily negative, but can be a source of valuable insight and understanding.
