A new palm vein scanning technology is being developed by scientists that could be used with laptops or other tablet devices. This technology involves the use of a biometric sensor that can scan the unique pattern of veins in a person’s palm to verify their identity. This technology could do away with the problem of remembering multiple passwords to access different websites. However, the technology would require new biometric sensors to be built into computers but this should not be a hindrance in the success of the new technology, because___________________________.

(A) the new technology is bound to be extremely popular with computer users
(B) the biometric sensors do not cost a lot of money and are available in plentiful supply
(C) most people have forgotten one or more of their passwords at some point in their lives
(D) there is almost always a market for innovations such as these
(E) the biometric sensors can be easily and cost effectively built into computers

The last sentence says “However, the technology would require new biometric sensors to be built into computers but this should not be a hindrance in the success of the new technology, because___________________________.


It is basically trying to say that there are requirements that must be met for the technology to be successful. What are these requirements? To be built/added in the computer.



Answer choices B and E address the matter of cost, however, only answer choice E shows that it is NOT a problem to build/add the technology into computers.

Answer choice E.
