Q27)Geneticist: Ethicists have fears, many of them reasonable, about the prospect of cloning human beings, that is, producing exact genetic duplicates. But the horror-movie image of a wealthy person creating an army of exact duplicates is completely unrealistic. Clones must be raised and educated, a long-term process that could never produce adults identical to the original in terms of outlook, personality, or goals. More realistic is the possibility that wealthy individuals might use clones as living “organ banks.”
The claim that cloning will not produce adults with identical personalities plays which one of the following roles in the geneticist’s argument?
(A) It is a reason for dismissing the various fears raised by ethicists regarding the cloning of human beings.
(B) It is evidence that genetic clones will never be produced successfully.
(C) It illustrates the claim that only wealthy people would be able to have genetic duplicates made of themselves.
(D) It is evidence for the claim that wealthy people might use genetic duplicates of themselves as sources of compatible organs for transplantation.
(E) It is a reason for discounting one possible fear concerning the cloning of human beings

(A) It is a reason for dismissing the various fears raised by ethicist regarding the cloning of human beings.>>> The statement is not alleviating various fears..!!
(B) It is evidence that genetic clones will never be produced successfully. >>> Clones can be produced successfully..duplicates clones can't be..!!
(C) It illustrates the claim that only wealthy people would be able to have genetic duplicates made of themselves. >>> Argument gives the example that wealthy people would make duplicates..Argument never said that only wealthy people can do it,..!!
(D) It is evidence for the claim that wealthy people might use genetic duplicates of themselves as sources of compatible organs for transplantation. >>> The statement "that cloning will not produce adults with identical personalities" only alleviate the fear that wealthy people might create an army..
(E) It is a reason for discounting one possible fear concerning the cloning of human beings>>> CORRECT

It was between A and E. Since this can not be the only reason for dismissing various claims. A is wrong.

I will go with E
