Newtonian physics dominated science for over two
centuries. It found consistently successful
application, becoming one of the most highly
substantiated and accepted theories in the history of
science. Nevertheless, Einstein’s theories came to
show the fundamental limits of Newtonian physics
and to surpass the Newtonian view in the early
1900s, giving rise once again to a physics
that has so far enjoyed wide success.
Which one of the following logically follows from
the statements above?
(A) The history of physics is characterized by a
pattern of one successful theory subsequently
surpassed by another.
(B) Long-standing success or substantiation of a
theory of physics is no guarantee that the
theory will continue to be dominant
(C) Every theory of physics, no matter how
successful, is eventually surpassed by one
that is more successful.
(D) Once a theory of physics is accepted, it will
remain dominant for centuries.
(E) If a long-accepted theory of physics is
surpassed, it must be surpassed by a theory
that is equally successful.
