The scenarios below are possible results of a study in which participants completed a measure of how important religion was to them personally. Participants are either from a Rural or Urban area, and are either Poor or Rich.

Which of the following interpretations is consistent with Scenario A?

A.

Religion is more important to poor people when they live in rural areas.

In the urban areas, poor people are socialized to be more like rich

people, who are less religious, regardless of where they live.

B.

Rich people, regardless of where they live, value religion moderately.

Poor people value religion more in urban centers than in rural areas

because it is more accessible.

C.

People who live in the urban areas need religion more than people in

rural areas, regardless of how rich or poor they are.

Poor people in urban areas have a harder time than people in rural areas, so they value religion more. Rich people who move to rural areas are trying to get away from their materialistic lifestyle and tend to be more religious.
