AssumptionQuestion
Q14)In any field, experience is required for a proficient person to become an expert. Through experience, a proficient person gradually develops a repertory of model situations that allows an immediate, intuitive response to each new situation. This is the hallmark of expertise, and or this reason computerized “expert systems” cannot be as good as human exerts. Although computers have the ability to store millions of bits of information, the knowledge of human experts, who benefit from the experience of thousands of situations, is not stored within their brains in the form of rules and facts.
The argument requires the assumption of which one of the following?
(A) Computers can show no more originality in responding to a situation than that built into them by their designers.
(B) The knowledge of human experts cannot be adequately rendered into the type of information that a computer can store.
(C) Human experts rely on information that can be expressed by rules and facts when they respond to new situations.
(D) Future advances in computer technology will not render computers capable of sorting through greater amounts of information.
(E) Human experts rely heavily on intuition while they are developing a repertory of model situations.

A: this already stated in the stem i.e. computers stored information in form of rules and fact, so this is not assumed.
C: this is just opposite to what is mentioned in stem. it's applicable for computers
D: stem is not concerned about future activities
E: exaggeration of first line of stem, so not assumed

B: correct, it is assumed .. if knowledge of experted as mentioned in stem can be the stored in comp then stem will no more valid so this is assumed.

The contrast is that the Humans can act intuitively(some original acts) out of information they have but computers cannot manipulate the already available information to create something original out of it.

i think your reasoning is correct but this is what the stem is trying to prove, and thus it can not be an assumption.
looking for some more guys to join the argument :)

I have the similar reasoning as sandeep25398. Here are my thoughts.

(A) Computers can show no more originality in responding to a situation than that built into them by their designers.
>> This is the point argument tried to explain.
(B) The knowledge of human experts cannot be adequately rendered into the type of information that a computer can store.
>> Yes. This is the assumption in the argument. The argument assumes that "Although computers have the ability to store millions of bits of information, The knowledge of human experts cannot be adequately rendered into the type of information that a computer can store."
(C) Human experts rely on information that can be expressed by rules and facts when they respond to new situations.
>> This is a conflict with the argument .." Although computers have the ability to store millions of bits of information, the knowledge of human experts, who benefit from the experience of thousands of situations, is not stored within their brains in the form of rules and facts"
(D) Future advances in computer technology will not render computers capable of sorting through greater amounts of information.
>> Arguement does not talk about future.
(E) Human experts rely heavily on intuition while they are developing a repertory of model situations.
>> Is the fact that is mentioned in argument.

Its between A and B. Seems B is more appropriate, since A seems to be just re-iterating the Premise.
