Experienced screenwriters, aiming at creating a 125-page screenplay for a film, usually turn in 135-page first draft. As one screenwriter put it, "That gives those in charge of the movie a chance to be creative when they get the script: at the very least, they can cut 15 pages."

The screenwriter's statement cited above conveys which of the following propositions?

A. Screenwriters for a film are generally not involved in any aspects of filmmaking besides providing the script.
B. Seasoned screenwriters are resigned to, and make allowance for, draft scripts being altered by those evaluating them.
C. Truly creative screenwriters are too temperamental to adhere to page limits set for their work.
D. It takes a special kind of creativity to recognize what is best left out of a film script.
E. Even experienced screenwriters cannot be expected to write scripts of consistently high quality throughout.

A. The argument never mentions anything about the scope of the responsibilities of the screenwriters, hence this cannot be inferred (Wrong)
B. Correct. Experienced scriptwriters are open to the idea that their script can be edited later on. This is exactly what is conveyed in the argument.
C. Nothing is mentioned about the temperament of the screenwriters (Wrong)
D. The argument just mentions that the extra-large script gives a chance to the people in charge to make edits, but does not make any comment on the quality of those edits or on the quality of the creativity of the people in charge (Wrong)
E. Nothing is mentioned in the argument about the quality of script writing (Wrong)
