Unlike fortune tellers, tarot card readers do not claim to be able to predict the future. Rather, they claim to offer an in-depth analysis of your present state of mind. Tarot reading is a legitimate practice, but fortune telling cannot be said to be based on scientific principles.

Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the conclusion above?

A. Fortune tellers are often among the first to predict natural disasters and manmade catastrophic events.

B. Horoscopes, which also claim to predict the future, are based around the motions of the sun and planets discovered during the golden age of the ancient Greece.

C. Many tarot readers are unable to explain how they are able to provide such accurate readings even.

D. Many major events, like the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and the housing crash of 2008, were predicted by tarot card readers.

E. Tarot readings are based on the language of symbols,whose effect on the subconscious is documented by Carl Jung, a well known psychoanalytic theorist.

E seems best: Tarot readings are based on the language of symbols,whose effect on the subconscious is documented by Carl Jung, a well known psychoanalytic theorist

conclusion is: Tarot reading is a legitimate practice, but fortune telling cannot be said to be based on scientific principles.

E hints at the fact that tarot reading is legitimate process
D, on the other hand, points at the accuracy of the process .

IMO E...
E says Tarot reading is a Documented theory and works on decisions taken by subconsious mind.
All other choices are unrelated or weaken the conclusion that tarot reading is a legitimate process.
