The World Bank has developed a computer program that assesses the authenticity of world currency suspected of being counterfeit. The program contains extensive profiles of the printing techniques and components of currencies of all major nations; such profiles include chemical composition of paper, density of ink, and details in the printing plates that are invisible to the naked eye. Counterfeiters, including the best counterfeiters known from history, cannot hope to reproduce all facets of a particular nation’s currency.

Which of the following can be logically concluded from the passage above?

A. The staff resources required to prepare currency for analysis by the program make use of the program prohibitively expensive.
B. Consumer banks will soon purchase the right to use the program on their own computers.
C. The program cannot fail to identify as inauthentic counterfeit currency that has previously escaped detection.
D. The authentication program has taken a number of years to develop.
E. In numerous cases, authentic currency is not recognized as authentic by the program.

cannot fail = success

The program succeed to identify as inauthentic counterfeit currency that has previously escaped detection.

Genuine counterfeit currency can be detected by any traditional fake note detection machine, but it is difficult to identify counterfeit currency, which is NOT genuine/fully counterfeit, i.e., slightly or less counterfeit.
