What is most likely the author\'s reason for sharing Jonathan\'s story in paragraph 1?
A brilliant student, Jonathan sailed through grade school. He completed his assignments easily and routinely earned As. Jonathan puzzled over why some of his classmates struggled, and his parents told him he had a special gift. In the seventh grade, however, Jonathan suddenly lost interest in school, refusing to do homework or study for tests. As a consequence, his grades plummeted. His parents tried to boost their son\'s confidence by assuring him that he was very smart. But their attempts failed to motivate Jonathan (who is a composite drawn from several children). Schoolwork, their son maintained, was boring and pointless. OOOO

B. Jonathan\'s story illustrates the problems that arise when one believes intelligence is fixed.
C. The majority of American students can relate to Jonathan\'s story.
D. Motivation continues to be problematic in most American classrooms
