Freudâ€™s theories of the workings of the mind, while brilliant for their day, were formulated before most of this centuryâ€™s great advances in neurophysiology and biochemistry. Today, we have a far deeper understanding of the biological components of thought, emotion, and behavior than was dreamed of eighty years ago. It would be foolish to continue parroting Freudâ€™s psychological theories as if these advances had never occurred.
It can be inferred from the passage above that the author would be most likely to favor
(A) the abandonment of most of Freudâ€™s theories
(B) a greater reliance on biological rather than psychological explanations of behavior
(C) a critical reexamination of Freudâ€™s place in the history of psychology
(D) a reexamination of Freudâ€™s theories in the light of contemporary biology
(E) increased financial support for studies in neurophysiology and biochemistry

Only A is consistent with the authors argument by stating that Freuds theories are antiquated.

On second thought, A does go a little too far. I`m going to have to change my answer to D.

E is out of scope. The same for C (Freud's place<>Freud's theories). A is too hard for a Gmat question. In the last sentence, the author says we don't have to follow Freud's theories whitout taking into account new discoveries. B is out as well. So I choose D
