但事实上,年轻人智力到底高不高,原句并没有提供出这个问题答案的信息,不知jl2315朋友如何得出"其实他们并不笨"的结论来的呢?

原句没有直接提供这个信息,是我自己根据语气猜测的。作者肯定不止这一句话,如果你结合上下文,我相信你会看出他就是这个意思。

还是要看上下文

原文是这样的
        Michael Jackson's "Thriller",in which monsters rise out of their graves and chase and threaten a woman,was also criticized.  "This man is a hero to our young people," one woman said of Jackson, "and he's encouraging violence against women."  Teenagers who were interviewed outside one store were upset greatly by the demonstration.  "To assume that young people will do whatever they see or hear doesn't say much for their intelligence,"said Shelly Woods,17.  "Our world is far from perfect , and teenagers must be taught at home to judge what is right and wrong," added Grey Bryant,18. "Censorship is not the answer."

我认为,这句话里面,they和their指的并不是同一群人。they指年轻人,their指assume这个动作的发出者,也就是父母。
所以这句话的意思是:他们居然想当然滴认为年轻人会盲目模仿所见所闻,这说明这些父母的智商并不很高。

我觉得以上的译文好像都有点不make sense的地方. 我觉得要让这句话make sense, their 就要指代其他人而不是年轻人, 也就是那个ASSUME的主语。 我的译文:
他们理所当然地以为年轻人只会盲目跟风,说明他们没头脑。

相反了。

如果以为年轻人看到听到什么就会跟着做什么,那是低估了他们的智力。


In my opinion, JL's translation is a good and accurate one.

这句话出自下面这篇短文:
        Hillside,Nebraska,usually a quiet town,was the scene of controversy last weekend as a parent group tried to ban the cassettes of rock videos that have violence in them. It has been estimated that there are 17.9 instances of violence for every hour of rock video.
        Twenty parents carrying signs saying,"Stop Violence in Our Neighborhoods" and  "Keep Your Children Out of Jail",demonstrated in front of several stores where cassettes of rock videos are sold.
        The parent group said a video called "Rock School" by a group called Heaven was typical. Here,high-school punk rock stars throw their books in the trash,and they are chased by a school guard with a rifle and a Doberman pinscher. The principal is wearing a stockingmask. The video ends with students and teachers rioting to rock'n'roll.
        Michael Jackson's "Thriller",in which monsters rise out of their graves and chase and threaten a woman,was also criticized.  "This man is a hero to our young people," one woman said of Jackson, "and he's encouraging violence against women."  Teenagers who were interviewed outside one store were upset greatly by the demonstration.  "To assume that young people will do whatever they see or hear doesn't say much for their intelligence,"said Shelly Woods,17.  "Our world is far from perfect , and teenagers must be taught at home to judge what is right and wrong," added Grey Bryant,18. "Censorship is not the answer."
关于这篇短文,有一个问题:
It can be seen from the text that teenagers believes that
A.  the world they live in is perfect
B.  they can judge what is right and wrong
C.  censorship has to be required to work well
D.  their parents underestimate their intelligence.
不知该选哪个答案呢?
