Even in a democracy, it is necessary to restrict the dissemination of advanced technological knowlege that is of commercial or national-security value. Dissemination to certain countries, those that are or will be competitors or enemies, should be selectively prohibited. There must, however, be free exchange of scientific information.

In order to act in accordance with the position above, it would be necessary to be able to rely on each of the following EXCEPT

A. It is possible to distinguish with confidence, despite any changes in the international environment, friendly or noncompetitive from hostile or competitive nations.

B. In a democracy, it is not necessary that the public have detailed knowledge of the country's advanced technology in order, for example, to make informed decisions about the direction public policy should take.

C. In most fields of science, basic scientific research is further advanced in countries that are democracies than in countries that are not democracies.

D. In each field of science, it is possible to distinguish scientific information from advanced technological knowledge that is of commercial or national-security value.

E. In cases where a company that uses advanced technology is a multinational organization, it is possible to keep information about the technology from being passed accross designated national boundaries.

I would say C because that is really irrelevant to the point

B

IMO tough between B and C, But C can be rejected because the democracies shuld be advanced in technology to transfer them to low tech countries...Not a very convincing rejection...

Tough between B and C

Chose B because the stem does not have to relate to public policy (if that makes sense).

Well here goes my reasoning.

Passage says that scientific knowledge can be disseminated however advanced scientific knowledge should not be disseminated.

Choice A is wrong as it indicates that democratic countries are able to distinguish between friendly, competitive and non-competitive countries then only those countries will stop giving the advanced know how to those rogue nations.

Choice B is wrong as well if the public acquire the advanced technical know how then it will easily pass to those rogue nations. Thus it indicates public need not have to know that advanced knowledge in order to decide about the programs.

Choice C is correct as in the beginning of the sentence is indicated Even democratic countries thus it indicates that other countries are in fray.

Choice D is incorrect as it indicates that it is easy to distinguish between important and non-important technical knowledge.

Choice E is incorrect as well as the multinational companies will not pass the information to the rogue countries.

I choose C.
The stem is concerned about high tech.
C is talking about basic scientific research and is therefore irrelevant. That is what we are looking for.

I will take a C on this. C seems a safer bet.
