11. Some psychologists claim that, in theory, the best way to understand another person would be through deep empathy, whereby one would gain a direct and complete grasp of that person’s motivations. But suppose they are right; then there would be no way at all to achieve understanding, since it is psychologically impossible to gain a direct and complete grasp of another person’s motivations. But obviously one can understand other people; thus these psychologists are wrong.
The argument is most vulnerable to the criticism that it
(A) fails to adequately define the key phrase “deep empathy”

(C) confuses a theoretically best way of accomplishing something with the only way of accomplishing it
(D) accepts a claim on mere authority, without requiring sufficient justification
(E) fails to consider that other psychologists may disagree with the psychologists cited
