In Freud’s system of psychoanalysis, the human brain consists of three parts: the id, which is the part driven by instincts; the super-ego, which is the moral center of the brain; and the ego, which is the pragmatic or realistic part. Unlike the neurosciences, which categorize the brain into somatic units that correspond to physical areas in the brain, the Freudian system divides the brain into categories that exist solely at the symbolic or conceptual level.

The considerations above best serve as part of an argument that

(A) Somatic categories are more scientifically credible than symbolic categories.

(B) The Freudian system of psychoanalysis is not a neuroscience.

(C)Unlike Freud, neuroscientists do not believe that the brain has a somatic moral center

(D)The neurosciences reject Freud’s categories as baseless.

(E)Science in Freud’s time was not developed enough to identify the brain’s somatic structure.

In Freud’s system of psychoanalysis, the human brain consists of three parts: the id, which is the part driven by instincts; the super-ego, which is the moral center of the brain; and the ego, which is the pragmatic or realistic part.

The considerations above best serve as part of an argument that

(A) Somatic categories are more scientifically credible than symbolic categories.
Explanation: Passage doesn't say that one is superior to other. Hence we can score it off as its a little extreme choice - INCORRECT

(B) The Freudian system of psychoanalysis is not a neuroscience.
Explanation: That's the difference. Freudian system of psychoanalysis cannot be neuroscience. - CORRECT

(C)Unlike Freud, neuroscientists do not believe that the brain has a somatic moral centre
Explanation: Again, another extreme choice. "do not believe". The passage has only mentioned about how Freud's system of psychoanalysis is different from Neurosciences. - INCORRECT

(D)The neurosciences reject Freud’s categories as baseless.
Explanation: Too extreme again! Same as C - INCORRECT

(E)Science in Freud’s time was not developed enough to identify the brain’s somatic structure.
Explanation: Irrelevant - INCORRECT

B is my answer
