Correct Answer: 
No

In Eastern Europe the nationalization of industry had not displaced the former ruling classes from their social prominence.

Correct Answer: 
No

Students from working-class backgrounds in Eastern Europe had greater access to higher education than did students from similar backgrounds in Western Europe.

Correct Answer: 
Yes

Students in Eastern and Western Europe had approximately equal access to higher education.

Correct Answer: 
No

The Eastern European countries on the list were Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, and Poland; the Western European countries were Great Britain, France, and West Germany. A larger percentage of students were from working class backgrounds in Eastern Europe than was the case in Western Europe. This difference was in part due to the communist philosophy prevailing in the regimes of Eastern Europe that the working class was the most "historically progressive" class.
