Do animals experience painful sensations in essentially the same way as humans, or is an animal’s sensation of pain substantially different from a human’s, from either a physiological or a psychological point of view? To this question, one answer is as good as another because there is no way of establishing experimental criteria with which to evaluate the painful sensations that animals experience.

The author of the passage above assumes that

A. animals have a lot of similarities to humans
B. some day we may be able to determine the degree and type of pain experienced by animals
C. the experiences of humans and animals are fundamentally different
D. experimentation can assess an animal’s experience of pain
E. animals do experience painful sensations

To this question, one answer is as good as another because there is no way of establishing experimental criteria with which to evaluate the painful sensations that animals experience.

The author of the passage above assumes that

A) animals have a lot of similarities to humans
The author is not assuming animals and humans to be similar but instead he is questioning the same.

B) some day we may be able to determine the degree and type of pain experienced by animals
Not mentioned.

C) the experiences of humans and animals are fundamentally different
Restatement. That's a question the passage is asking.

D) experimentation can assess an animal’s experience of pain
The passage clearly states that there is no way of establishing experimental criteria.

E) animals do experience painful sensations
Correct Answer. The author assumes that animals experience painful sensations and then wonders whether these sensations are similar to or different than those experienced by humans.

The author of the passage above assumes that

some day we may be able to determine the degree and type of pain experienced by animals
the experiences of humans and animals are fundamentally different
experimentation can assess an animal’s experience of pain
animals do experience painful sensations

An assumption question is the one in which the there must be a base to which the argument is based and that fact must always be true according to the author

The correct choice is E since the base of the experimentation is that the animals o experience pain other wise there is no need of experimentation about the variation and similarities between teh pains experienced by the aminals and the pain experienced by human being.By making this point to be true only we can compare that the animals experience pain.

So E is the most appropriate answer choice for this question.
