Teresa: Manned spaceflight does not have a future, since it cannot compete economically with other means of accomplishing the objectives of spaceflight.
Edward: No mode of human transportation has a better record of reliability: two accidents in twenty-five years. Thus manned spaceflight definitely has a positive future.

Which of the following is the best logical evaluation of Edward’s argument as a response to Teresa’s argument?

(A) It cites evidence that, if true, tends to disprove the evidence cited by Teresa in drawing her conclusion.
(B) It indicates a logical gap in the support that Teresa offers for her conclusion.
(C) It raises a consideration that outweighs the argument Teresa makes.
(D) It does not meet Teresa’s point because it assumes that there is no serious impediment to transporting people into space, but this was the issue raised by Teresa.
(E) It fails to respond to Teresa’s argument because it does not address the fundamental issue of whether space activities should have priority over other claims on the national budget.

one focuses on the economy, the other focuses on the reliability

I agree with the first bit that 'It does not meet Teresa's point' but then I dont think Edward's argument ASSUMES that there is no serious impediment. In fact, he EXPLICITLY STATES it. Plus, Teresa's point was not about being safe, rather it was about being economical. I was conused between B and D.

Whats the source?

Teresa's argument is about transporting people economically into space. Edward has completely ignored this aspect in his argument. Rather, Edward's argument seems to assume that transporting people into the space will be economical.

Thus, D becomes the best option.

A, B and C are clearly not it.
E mentions dubious "national budget", "fundamental issue" - none of that in the dialogue. Besides, Edward does not really address Teresa's argument about the problem she claims manned space flights have.

Therefore, D is the answer, because it points out that Edwards does not meet Teresa's point of manned space flights being not economically sensible.
