The sentence is sort of strange, isn't it?
Why a father and not a parent? Would the involvement of a mother be harmful to the child? ~makes a funny face~

dear soochu,
the correct word to choose is option a ie involvement
the sentence: Researchers at the University of Illanois determined that the involvement of a father can help improve a child’s grades, means that if the father of a child takes active involvement in his child's activities like teaching lessons to the child, discussing the day's activities and offering suggestions etc then the child's grades will improve.
hope that helps.

What do you exactly mean, Miriam?
I mean exactly what I said.
I find the choice of word strange. Why "father" instead of "parent"? Does that mean that "mothers" should not be involved in their children's education?
