Hello Friends ,
This is a PR problem and i am satified with its reasoning for the options A to D ,but i think that option E which says
"some flying machines that were not closely modeled on birds failed to work" ,and if this is true then the conclusion
will be weaken as researchers who focus on brain's structure and ignore its structure may also fail . Please elaborate reasoning to eliminate this answer .Thanks in advance.

I would go with [A]. In the last statement, Yang says that researchers should ignore the brain's physical structure and just focus on its function and sights the example of aviation pioneers who failed when they built aircraft that were structurally similar to birds. However, if studying the physical structure of birds did provide useful info for the development of workable aircraft, then his argument does not hold true.

What is the OA?
