Grade 3 Making Inferences and Drawing Conclusions

NASA sends several missions to space each year, but not all of them launch on schedule. When a mission is delayed or cancelled, it's called a "scrub." Missions can get scrubbed due to technical problems, but that usually happens before the launch date. Bad weather can cause a scrub on the launch date. If the air temperature is not within a specific range, the clouds are too thick, or there is too much wind, a mission that is ready to launch will be scrubbed. Most scrubbed missions launch once conditions improve.

Which statement is a generalization about what you just read?
  1. If you want to see a launch, make sure the mission hasn't been scrubbed before traveling to Cape Canaveral.
  2. Many NASA missions that are scrubbed will never launch.
  3. Most NASA missions that are scrubbed on the launch date are delayed due to bad weather.
  4. NASA delays missions when they don't have enough money to launch.
