The philosopher Socrates was considered by the traditions of the ancient Greek society in which he lived to be a very ugly man. However, he once convinced a colleague of his that he, Socrates, was the better looking of the two as his eyes bulged out a great deal, and thus were better at collecting light, so more suitable for seeing, and that his nose was very large, and was therefore more capable of gathering smells.
Which of the following is NOT an assumption in Socrates' argument?
(A) The society in which Socrates lived should value the sizes of people's noses more than it actually did.
(B) Eyes which bulge out a great deal and noses which are large are better suited for their tasks than those of more normal proportions.
(C) The ability of a body's senses to carry out their functions is considered attractive qualities in a person.
(D) The person to whom Socrates was comparing himself did not have bulging eyes or a large nose.
(E) The most important factors deciding whether a person is considered good-looking are how well his or her eyes and nose function.
