Find the statement that must be true according to the given information.

3.

Erin is twelve years old. For three years, she has been asking her parents for a dog. Her parents have told her that they believe a dog would not be happy in an apartment, but they have given her permission to have a bird. Erin has not yet decided what kind of bird she would like to have.

 [A]. Erin's parents like birds better than they like dogs. [B]. Erin does not like birds. [C]. Erin and her parents live in an apartment. [D]. Erin and her parents would like to move.

Explanation:

Since Erin's parents think a dog would not be happy in an apartment, we can reasonably conclude that the family lives in an apartment. We do not know if Erin's parents dislike dogs (choice a) or if Erin dislikes birds (choice b).There is no support for choice d.
