On his first trip to the Peopleâ€™s Republic of China, a young US diplomat of very subordinate rank embarrassed himself by asking a Chinese official how it was that Orientals managed to be so inscrutable. The Chinese official smiled and then gently responded that he preferred to think of the inscrutability of his race in terms of a want of perspicacity in Occidentals.

Which of the following best describes the point of the comment made by the Chinese official?

a) It is not merely the Chinese, but all Oriental people who are inscrutable.
b) Most Americans fails to understand Chinese Culture.
c) What one fails to perceive may be attributable to carelessness in observation rather than obscurity inherent in the object.
d) Since the resumption of diplomatic relations between the US and communist China, many older Chinese civil servants have grown to distrust the Americans.
e) If the West and the East are ever to truly understand one another, there will have to be considerable cultural exchange between the two.
