Human intelligence is not possible without human emotions. A computer is something that can never display emotions, so for that reason alone a computer will never be able to display intelligence.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?
(a) A computer could have emotions only if it could display intelligence
(b) Computer technology will not greatly advance beyond its current state
(c) Someone or something is intelligent only if it can identify its emotions
(d) The greater the capacity to feel emotions, the more intelligence there is
(e) Being intelligent requires capacity to have emotions

E is well enough, but it is already written in the argument.

Why don't you consider B? The author says that since computer cannot display the emotions, it will NEVER be able to display inteligence. But it may be possible in far future.
P.S.: remember Terminator:Rise of machines?

I'm strongly on (B) here.

The conclusion says that the computer will NEVER be able to...., so IMO, (B) is assumed.

Vote for E.

I think that B goes too far from the argument.

I think B may be incorrect because it equates advance beyond current state with the ability to display emotions. This is not implied in stimulus.

Does anyone else want to share ur thots on why B is incorrect?
