his parents are probably republicans


Use the elimination process. Well, if the teachers in his school are republican, does it mean he is? Nope. If his parents are republicans, does it mean he is?  Most likely. Just because he sees them on T.V., does it mean he is one?  Nope. His state governor is a republican. But that doesn't mean he is one, right? Nope. He may be a democratic. So, #2 is the answer.
