The same task triggers different levels of awareness of one's surroundings, called environmental awareness, in different individuals. Mathematical puzzles, for example, cause most people to increase such an awareness. Some people-those who formulate the answer visually, imagining the numbers in their mind's eye-will, in an attempt to freeze the picture, experience a decrease in environmental awareness while solving the puzzle. Other people's environmental awareness may rise during the exercise, because their brains are signaling a rest at the end of every stage of problem solving.

Which one of the following is most strongly supported by the information above?

(A) There are some people for whom mathematical puzzles do not cause an increase in their level of environmental awareness,
(B) People who visually formulate answers differ from other problem solvers in that the former are aware of their surroundings,
(C) People tend to be more aware of their surroundings when solving mathematical problems than when solving non mathematical problems.
(D) Mathematical problem solvers who rely on visual techniques become aware of their surroundings only during periods of rest.
(E) Mathematical problem solving requires frequent periods of rest in the form of increased awareness of the problem solver's surrounding.

Which one of the following is most strongly supported by the information above?

(A) There are some people for whom mathematical puzzles do not cause an increase in their level of environmental awareness, - Can be directly inferred
(B) People who visually formulate answers differ from other problem solvers in that the former are aware of their surroundings - Exactly opposite
(C) People tend to be more aware of their surroundings when solving mathematical problems than when solving non mathematical problems - No support for this in the passage. Mathematical puzzles are only an example.
(D) Mathematical problem solvers who rely on visual techniques become aware of their surroundings only during periods of rest - It cant be inferred, we only know their awareness decreases.
(E) Mathematical problem solving requires frequent periods of rest in the form of increased awareness of the problem solver's surrounding - Not true.
