### HideShow timer Statistics

15. Human beings can see the spatial relations among
objects by processing information conveyed by light.
Scientists trying to build computers that can detect
spatial relations by the same kind of process have so
far designed and built stationary machines.
However, these scientists will not achieve their goal
until they produce such a machine that can move
around in its environment.

Which of the following, if true, would best support
the prediction above?
(A) Human beings are dependent on visual cues
form motion in order to detect spatial relations.
(B) Human beings can often easily detect the spatial
relations among objects, even when those
objects are in motion.
(C) Detecting spatial relations among objects
requires drawing inferences from the infor-
mation conveyed by light.
(D) Although human beings can discern spatial
relations through their sense of hearing,
vision is usually the most important means of
detecting spatial relations.
(E) Information about the spatial relations among
objects can be obtained by noticing such
things as shadows and the relative sizes of
objects.

Folks this is not an easy CR. I hope you agree. Why would you not spend few minutes and post your responses.

The problem here is that either the object can be under motion or the human being can be under motion. I gut feeling says that I should go with B but my logical analysis says I should go with A. You know you can refute alomst anything ( except the formal logic Qs).

The reason for getting rid of B is the word(s) "often easily". Does this mean the machine has difficulty in detecting spatial relations when bodies are in motion? Could be!!!
As far as A is concerned the humans can move relative to stationary objects ( if those objects dont move ) and gaze the distance.

Well, the way I see it, with B, scientists can still achieve their goals since human beings can often detect spatial relations among objects when they are in motion. Often is the key word here.

However, if A is true, then the scientists will not achieve their goals unless the computers can move around.
