    Not true. “modern educationists insist on prescribing multi-dimensional”
  2. Howard Gardener wants to develop and assess the theory of multiple intelligences.
    Not true. “Howard Gardner expounds that human intelligence can be subcategorized into multiple kinds” meaning he explains the theory of multiple intelligence but we cannot infer if he wants to develop and assess that theory.
  3. Modern educationists want to develop and assess the theory of multiple intelligences.
    Not true. “Based on this theory, modern educationists insist on prescribing multi-dimensional curriculum” meaning modern educationists are using the theory – but we cannot infer if they want to develop it.
  4. Modern educationists insist that the teaching curriculum and evaluation needs to be multi-dimensional.
    True. This can be clearly inferred from “modern educationists insist on prescribing multi-dimensional curriculum
