    the question is
    Applying material from Item B and your knowledge, evaluate the fuctionalist view that socialisation is mainly concerned with transmitting 'the normas and values of society'.

    its just saying that fuctionalists argue that society has certain functional prerequisties and how norms and values are needed. it also includes how other sociologists say that norms and values are only transmitted into certain groups in society
