Researchers believe that we will ultimately be able to explain all “psychic” phenomena. Achieving this goal requires knowledge of how mental images are “sent” and “received” over distance and how senders and receivers interact at a biological level. At present, there is a substantial amount of fundamental knowledge about receiving images and sending images. Thus, as researchers claim, psychic phenomena will soon be explainable.

Which one of the following indicates an error in the reasons in the passage?

(A) The conclusion contradicts researchers.
(B) The passage fails to describe what is currently known about senders and receivers.
(C) The passage does not indicate that any knowledge has been achieved about how senders and receivers interact at a biological level.
(D) The argument does not indicate whether this information will be useful.
(E) The passage is not specific about what psychic phenomena are being researched.

To explain all “psychic” phenomena,knowledge of 2 things are required:
1.how mental images are “sent” and “received” over distance
2.how senders and receivers interact at a biological level
But presently,information about only first point is known and nothing is mentioned about the second point and this is the flaw which only option C states.

(A) The conclusion contradicts researchers.There is no contradiction in the passage.

(B) The passage fails to describe what is currently known about senders and receivers.This is very vague and broad.[color=#ff0000][/color]
(C) The passage does not indicate that any knowledge has been achieved about how senders and receivers interact at a biological level.Correctly replicates the flaw.
(D) The argument does not indicate whether this information will be useful.Does not indicate the flaw in reasoning.
(E) The passage is not specific about what psychic phenomena are being researched.Does not indicate the flaw in reasoning.

I had a confusion between B and C but the correct answer is C as it talks about the biological interaction between sent and received. The statement following it talks about available fundamental knowledge. It does not tells us how the connection is established as that is the main point. That's why C
