Determine whether the following statement makes sense or does not make sense, and explain your reasoning:

By modeling attitudes of college freshmen from 1969 through 2006, I can make precise predictions about the attitudes of the freshman class of 2020.

A) This makes sense because you can fit a function to the data on attitudes of college freshmen and then use that model to predict the attitudes of future classes.

B) This does not make sense because even though mathematical models provide excellent estimates about future attitudes, they cannot guarantee perfect precision.
