Joel: A myth is a narrative told to convey a community's traditional wisdom. Myths are not generally told in the modern world because there are no larger bodies of generally accepted truths that can be conveyed in this way.

Giselle: Of course there are myths in the modern world. For example, there is the myth of the machine: we see the human body as a machine, to be fixed by mending defective parts. This may not be a narrative, but what medically trained specialist can deny the existence of that myth?

Which one of the following most accurately characterizes Giselle's response to Joel's statement?

(A) It offers a scientific explanation to a problem of literary theory.

(B) It points out a weakness in Joel's position by advancing an analogous position.

(C) It is based on an unsupported distinction between traditional societies and the modern world.

(D) It assumes that Joel is medically trained specialist.

(E) It offers a counterexample that calls into question part of Joel's definition of myth.
