5. In any field, experience is required for a proficient person to become an expert. Through experience, a proficient person gradually develops a repertory of model situations that allows an immediate, intuitive response to each new situation. This is the hallmark of expertise, and or this reason computerized “expert systems” cannot be as good as human exerts. Although computers have the ability to store millions of bits of information, the knowledge of human experts, who benefit from the experience of thousands of situations, is not stored within their brains in the form of rules and facts.

The argument requires the assumption of which one of the following?

(A) Computers can show no more originality in responding to a situation than that built into them by their designers.
(B) The knowledge of human experts cannot be adequately rendered into the type of information that a computer can store.
(C) Human experts rely on information that can be expressed by rules and facts when they respond to new situations.
(D) Future advances in computer technology will not render computers capable of sorting through greater amounts of information.
(E) Human experts rely heavily on intuition while they are developing a repertory of model situations.

IN case of 'find an assumption questions' you can always use the Assumption negation technique to confirm the ans.
You should negate the probable answers and see which one is doing max damage to the argument.

In this case B is the one.

i understand that why B is an assumption of the stimuli but A can also be an assumption.
why is A not right?If computers can show originality then it can respond to situations as it were thinking? right?

YangYichen, it might seem to undermine the argument if computers could demonstrate originality, but this doesn't really fit in with the premises. The author's point is that human experts are better than computers because their experience gives them a repertoire of model situations to draw on. There's nothing here about originality, and it's not clear how originality would affect the argument. If humans are superior because of their experience, it isn't necessary for humans to also have a monopoly on originality.

Does that help?

sorry i'm still a little confused because you say "it might seem to undermine the argument if computers could demonstrate originality", if it undermines the argument when negate A(computers could demonstrate originality), then A would be an assumption right? that's what we are taught how to comfirm whether a choice is a premise of an argument.
