The government's funding program for the sciences is purposed to encourage the creation of works of scientific excellence. However, Senator Wood contends that a government-funded science program can never reflect the scientific conscience of the scientist because scientists, like anyone else who accepts financial support, will inevitably try to please those who control the distribution of that support. Senator Wood concludes that government funding of the sciences not only is a burden on taxpayers but also cannot lead to the creation of works of true scientific excellence.

Which one of the following is an assumption on which Senator Wood's argument is based?

A Once a scientist has produced works of true scientific excellence, he or she will never accept government funding.
B A work of science that does not reflect the scientific conscience of the scientist cannot be a work of true scientific excellence.
C Distribution of government funds for the sciences is based on a broad agreement as to what constitutes scientific excellence.
D Most taxpayers have little or no interest in the creation of works of true scientific excellence.
E Government funding of the sciences is more generous than other financial support most scientists receive.

Argument says govt funding will never reflect scientific conscience as scientist will try to please those who give this support and cannot lead to creation of works of excellence

But if scientific work which does not reflect conscience is a work of excellence then argument will fall apart I.e people to whom scientists are pleasing are interested and their concerns will lead to result of excellence of work

B clearly states this

Others are irrelevant or not addressing main concern

Give kudos if it helps
