1.Anthropological studies indicate that distinct culture differs in their moral codes. Thus, as long as there are distinct cultures there are no values shared across cultures.
Each of the following, if true, would weaken the argument EXCEPT:

(A) Anthropologists rely on inadequate translation techniques to investigate the values of cultures that use languages different from the anthropologists’ languages.
(B) As a result of advancing technology and global communication we will someday all share the same culture and the same values.
(C) Although specific moral values differ across cultures, more general moral principles, such as “Friendship is good,” are common to all cultures.
(D) The anthropologists who have studied various cultures have been biased in favor of finding differences rather than similarities between distinct cultures.
(E) What appear to be differences in values between distinct cultures are nothing more than differences in beliefs about how to live in accordance with shared values.

Pls explain to me

I will go with B as it is the only statement which is in continiuty of the passage and doesn't weaken the passage.
