3. A new law gives ownership of patents—documents
providing exclusive right to make and sell an inven-
tion—to universities, not the government, when
those patents result from government-sponsored uni-
versity research. Administrators at Logos University
plan to sell any patents they acquire to corporations
in order to fund programs to improve undergraduate
teaching.

Which of the following, if true, would cast most
doubt on the viability of the college administrators’
plan described above?
(A) Profit-making corporations interested in devel-
oping products based on patents held by uni-
versities are likely to try to serve as exclusive
sponsors of ongoing university research projects.
(B) Corporate sponsors of research in university
facilities are entitled to tax credits under new
federal tax-code guidelines.
(C) Research scientists at Logos University have few
or no teaching responsibilities and participate little
if at all in the undergraduate programs in their field.
(D) Government-sponsored research conducted at
Logos University for the most part duplicates
research already completed by several profit-
making corporations.
(E) Logos University is unlikely to attract corporate
sponsorship of its scientific research.

I'll go with D.

If the corporations have already done some research on it or if there is a research that is in progress, they wouldn't fund Logo University.
And the aim of the universtity is to get funds from them.So the univ's purpose would be defeated.
