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 from 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 information 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

Hey guys, just wanted to jump in on this one. So here we are told that scientists will not achieve its goal until they can produce a machine that CAN move around
So there must be something about movement that improves the ability to see spatial relations etc...

A is perfect here. It strengthens our point.

Other answer choices are not really that precise
Hope it helps

(A) Human beings are dependent on visual cues from motion in order to detect spatial relations. --> If human beings use cues from motion, that could explain why stationary machines will not be successful.
(B) Human beings can often easily detect the spatial relations among objects, even when those objects are in motion. --> The argument is about the viewer being stationary or in motion and not about object being in motion.
(C) Detecting spatial relations among objects requires drawing inferences from the information conveyed by light. --> Doesn't give any reason why it would help humans but not "stationary" machines.
(D) Although human beings can discern spatial relations through their sense of hearing, vision is usually the most important means of detecting spatial relations. --> Out of scope.
(E) Information about the spatial relations among objects can be obtained by noticing such things as shadows and the relative sizes of objects --> Out of scope.

A for me.

looks like a straight forward one to me.. A

A for me as well..
A explains why the machine needs to be able to move around.

A is the only one answer that supports the idea of not being able to achieve their goal ... until they can have machines that are able to move around. So .. it is definately A!
