3. 'The intractable child could not be persuaded to follow the rules.'
The latin root -tract- means "to draw" or "to pull." Given this meaning, what can you conclude is the best definition for the word 'intractable' as it is used in the sentence?
A Not knowledgeable
B Not innocent
C Not artistic
D Not easily directed

I'm pretty sure the answer is either A or D.

  2. Hmmm... I want to say D but I'm going to go with A because the child is not acknowledging the rules/taking the time to follow them.

  3. I think D is the best answer. The child knows, but chooses not to go along with others.
