Scientific research will be properly channeled whenever those who decide which research to fund give due weight to the scientific merits of all proposed research. But when government agencies control these funding decisions, political considerations play a major role in determining which research will be funded, and whenever political considerations play such a role, the inevitable result is that scientific research is not properly channeled.
Which one of the following can be properly inferred from the statements above?
(A) There is no proper role for political considerations to play in determining who will decide which scientific research to fund. (B) It is inevitable that considerations of scientific merit will be neglected in decisions regarding the funding of scientific research. (C) Giving political considerations a major role in determining which scientific research to fund is incompatible with giving proper weight to the scientific merits of proposed research. (D) When scientific research is not properly channeled, governments tend to step in and take control of the process of choosing which research to fund. (E) If a government does not control investment in basic scientific research, political consideration will inevitably be neglected in deciding which research to fund.
