that Wieck must've given some kind of alley-oop to Schumann as he soared towards his slam-dunk
of composer fame. Choices (B) and (D) are the easiest to remove
from our lives, because they don't remotely resemble anything that the passage covers.
There's no talk of Wieck booking shows for Schumann, like (D) tries to make us believe.
And there's definitely no talk of Wieck co-writing anything that Schuman even vaguely
conceived of writing. We can leave both (B) and (D) by the wayside.
Let's see what answer (A) has to offer.
Well, we know from an earlier question, and from the passage, that Schumann's first
teacher was some old nameless pedantic guy from Zwickau <<zwick-ow>> High School.
So we're sure that Wieck wasn't whoever this dude was, and we can eliminate choice (A).
Choice (C) totally gets it right. The passage tells us that Wieck was the guy who was the
first to really school Schumann on what music was all about.
Whether he liked it or not.
