Several movie versions of Charles Dickens' Tale of Two Cities have been made. The original movie version made in 1939 is the best because it is closest in spirit to the original novel.
An underlying assumption of the argument above is that a movie based on a novel should:

A) reflect the director's original interpretation of the main themes of the novel.
B) accurately depict the time and place in which the novel is set.
C) feature actors and actresses who closely resemble the characters in the novel both in body and spirit.
D) faithfully render the details of the plot from the narrator's point of view.
E) capture the true meaning and intention of the novel.

The key idea here is "details of the plot". This refers to the events, twists and turns in the plot, which is a component of the spirit and intention the (author of a) novel tries to convey. However, E is quite better as it directly relates to the main question. So, essentially "true meaning and intention" is closer to "spirit" than "details of plot".

In order to get clarity on such questions, we have a targeted verbal course for candidates preparing for the GMAT. You can find more details here:
