Exercise 6 - Towards academic reading
Solving problems often requires a multi-dimensional approach which considers all possible factors that may be causing the problem.
Read this paragraph and answer the question below.
Why Do So Many Men Lose Their Hair?

If researchers were to investigate baldness in middle-aged men, they may notice that many bald men also have what is called a ‘beer’ belly (a large stomach). This could lead researchers to mistakenly conclude that a large stomach is the cause of the baldness. This mistake can be avoided if researchers recognize that there are usually a number of factors that cause problems such as male baldness. In order to solve these problems, we need to adopt a multi-dimensional approach that tries to address all the factors that contribute to the problem.
