When people predict that certain result will not take place unless a certain action is taken, they believe that they have learned that the prediction is correct when the action is taken and the result occurs. On reflection, however, it often becomes clear that the result admits of more than one interpretation.

Which of the following, if true, best supports the claims above?

(A) Judging the success of an action requires specifying the goal of the action.

(B) Judging which action to take after a prediction is made requires knowing about other actions that have been successful in similar past situations.

(C) Learning whether a certain predictive strategy is good requires knowing the result using that strategy through several trials.

(D) Distinguishing a correct prediction and effective action from an incorrect prediction and ineffective action is often impossible.

(E) Making a successful prediction requires knowing the facts about the context of that prediction.

Need help with the above CR. Its a 1000CR question. Its been discussed earler but i just dont unerstand the explanations. So, guys, pls help me out.

- Not in context
(B) Judging which action to take after a prediction is made requires knowing about other actions that have been successful in similar past situations.
- Not required to knoq about other actions.
(C) Learning whether a certain predictive strategy is good requires knowing the result using that strategy through several trials.
- this best supports the claim above, this talks about knowing the result through trials
(D) Distinguishing a correct prediction and effective action from an incorrect prediction and ineffective action is often impossible.
- not relevant
(E) Making a successful prediction requires knowing the facts about the context of that prediction.
- Not required

C..see first statement closely.

From the stem "the result admits of more than one interpretation", C says "knowing the result using that strategy through several trials" means the results in several trials would be very different or will include many other interpretation.
