Generally scientists enter their field with the goal of doing important new research and accept as their colleagues those with similar motivation. Therefore, when any scientist wins renown as an expounder of science to general audiences, most other scientists conclude that this popularizer should no longer be regarded as a true colleague.

The explanation offered above for the low esteem in which scientific popularizers are held by research scientists assumes that

(A) serious scientific research is not a solitary activity, but relies on active cooperation among a group of colleagues
(B) research scientists tend not to regard as colleagues those scientists whose renown they envy
(C) a scientist can become a famous popularizer without having completed any important research
(D) research scientists believe that those who are well known as popularizers of science are not motivated to do important new research
(E) no important new research can be accessible to or accurately assessed by those who are not themselves scientists

The premise is scientists think motivation to do important new research = worthy of colleague. Conclusion is when scientist wins renown, then scientist != colleague. So the assumption is those who win renown are not motivated, and therefore cannot be a colleague.

Yes IMO, in GMAT, assumption is something implied and not explicitly stated in the argument.

OG(The Bible for GMAT) Reasoning:
What assumption do research scientists make about scientists who become popularizers?

The community of scientists shares a common goal:to do important new research.What would cause this community to disapprove of a popularizer? Any scientist who becomes a popularizer appears to have given up this shared goal in order to explain science to a general audience instead.This popularizer may be assumed to have lost the motivation to do important new research.

A The issue is the scientists’ goal.not the methods they use to achieve it.

The premise is that scientists take as their colleague, only the scientists who have motivation for doing important new research.

Conclusion is popular scientists no longer can be considered as colleague.

(D) Provides the missing link... that those well known are not motivated for doing imp new reasearch. (C) maybe a reason for that, but does nothing to this missing link or Assumption. Hence D wins

C says scientists 'can' become famous without doing any important research - this doesnt mean that everyone who become a popularizer didn't do important research.
D applies to all such people. Hence D is the answer.

Lets try and do it mathematically

Generally scientists enter their field with the goal of doing important new research and accept as their
colleagues those with similar motivation. Therefore, when any scientist wins renown as an expounder of science
to general audiences, most other scientists conclude that this popularizer should no longer be regarded as a true
colleague.

1) Scientists accept = people with equal motivation
2) Scientists do not accept = people who win acclaim or Popularizers

From 1) and 2)

Popularizers do not have the motivation

Hence clearly D

Hope this Helps

Argument ..
1.) Scientist involved in research is cool according to his colleagues.
2.) A scientist who is blah blah should not be considered as scientist according to others who are not blah blah
if we read only statement 1 we know that some one who is not doing research or whose aim is not to do research is not a scientist. there fore a scientist doing blah blah is not considered as doing research or it is not considered that his aim is to do research

A - out of scope
B - envy ? who said that ?
C - yes he can and he also cannot
D - Bingo .. our rock star !
E - what ? let it go.

The answer is a straight D. C is a trap. Read carefully and you will see that it contains the words important research while we are concerned with new research.
