The question whether intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is certainly imprecise, because we are not sure how different from us something might be and still count as â€œintelligent life.â€

A Or D, would either be counterproductive to the claim or irrelevant. Not sure.

Will go with C.

The second argument of tha passage clearly states that current definitions of intelligent life should be broadened.

Bagged (C) after cutting through all the excess rubric. Surely, there must be some sort of intelligent life beyond the the Kuiper Belt/Ourt Cloud, we just don`t have the advanced technology to discover it yet...

This CR really is unique (experimental?) What will the folks at PVue think of next

i think D is correct. C says intelligent life can't be defined. But this is not stated...

I also though that it is C. But a second look can convince that this should be D.

Here we are not debating what is intelligent life and what is not. Issue is if we define the term "intelligent life" the way we are defining now we won't be able to find the intelligent life elsewhere. So if we try to find life elsewhere using the current definition of "intelligent life", this will be counterproductive to our efforts.

Wow, "Sharp arrow," what a profoundly esoteric analysis. Guess the GMAT is evolving after all if questions like these are included...
