This is purely meaning based test

The stem : The notion that a parasite can alter the behavior of a host organism is not mere fiction; indeed, the phenomenon is not even observable.

We can see from the stem that the author is setting up a contrasting statement to the notion that a parasite can alter the behavior of a host organism is fiction.

Our answer choice should uphold this view of the author

Only answer choice D helps the author's statement

Answer is (D)

The answer doesn't make sense to me; can you cite the source for this question?

The way the sentence is phrased, the answer should be something of a degree higher than fiction.
I would have gone for comprehensible, but with the given options, imaginable would make the most sense.
