Which two statements best support the central idea (central claim) of Paige's argument?
"And you know what? I think it would be amazing!"
"Ever since Principal Schuman announced that Ridgewood Middle School is thinking about requiring students to wear uniforms, I've been trying to imagine what it would be like to wear the same outfit day after day--an outfit, I might add, that I didn't choose and that is identical to the one everyone else is wearing."
"Some kids even get bullied because their parents can't afford--or simply refuse to buy--whatever expensive brand-name sneakers or jeans are currently in style."
"Uniforms could also make Ridgewood safer. No one would be able to wear gang colors or symbols."
