Biologist: Some computer scientists imagine that all that is required for making an artificial intelligence is to create a computer program that encapsulates the information contained in the human genome. They are mistaken. The operation of the human brain is governed by the interactions of proteins whose structures are encoded in the human genome.

Which one of the following is an assumption required by the biologist's argument?

(A) The functions of the human brain are governed by processes that cannot be simulated by a computer.

(B) The interactions of the proteins that govern the operation of the human brain are not determined by the information contained in the human genome.

(C) The only way to create an artificial intelligence is to model it on the operation of the human brain.

(D) The amount of information contained in the human genome is too large to be easily encapsulated by a computer program.

(E) It is much more difficult to write a program that encapsulates the interactions of proteins than to write a program that encapsulates the information contained in the human genome.

(A) The functions of the human brain are governed by processes that cannot be simulated by a computer.
No information indicates that the functions cannot be simulated by a computer

(B) The interactions of the proteins that govern the operation of the human brain are not determined by the information contained in the human genome.
Correct. Those proteins are decoded from the information contained in the human genome. However,
the information contained in the human genome doesn't determine the interactions of those proteins.


(C) The only way to create an artificial intelligence is to model it on the operation of the human brain.
The passage didn't indicate this information.

(D) The amount of information contained in the human genome is too large to be easily encapsulated by a computer program.
No information supports this choice

(E) It is much more difficult to write a program that encapsulates the interactions of proteins than to write a program that encapsulates the information contained in the human genome.
No information supports this choice
