A university professor researching sleep disorders occasionally taught class after spending whole nights working in a laboratory. She found lecturing after such nights difficult: she reported that she felt worn out and humorless, and she had difficulty concentrating and finding the appropriate words. After several weeks of lectures, she asked her students to guess which lectures had been given after nights without sleep. Interestingly, very few students were able to correctly identify them.

Which one of the following statements is most strongly supported by the information above?

(A) The subjective effects of occasional sleep deprivation are more pronounced than are its effects on overt behavior.
(B) No one can assess the overall effects of sleep deprivation on a particular person as well as that sleep-deprived person can.
(C) Sleep deprivation has less effect on professors' job perfcnmance than it does on the job performance of others.
(D) Occasional sleep deprivation is not as debilitating as extended sleep deprivation.
(E) University students in a lecture audience tend to be astute observers of human behavior.

Stem - Professor took lectures after working whole nights in the lab. Professor can feel the difference in her performance as result of sleep deprivation but Students were not able to distinguish among the lectures.

A - Correct answer. Professor was able to feel the impact of sleep deprivation (subjective effects) but students weren't (overt behavior)
B - Students were not able to assess it but we can't claim no one can't to this.
C - Out of scope - No mention of any other person
D - Out of scope - No mention of extended sleep deprivation
E - Wee can't claim based on given stem.

Option B is too extreme answer choice and Options C,D and E are irrelevant and cannot be inferred from any part of the passage. A mentions that the subjective effects of sleep deprivation are clearly noticeable and visible on Professor and students are not able to see any effects of the same
