Winston: The rules for awarding Nobel Prizes stipulate that no more than three people can share the same prize. Nobel Prizes in the scientific disciplines are generally given in recognition of particular scientific results, however, and many important results are the work of four or more scientists.

Sanjay: Those rules also stipulate that prize winners must be living, but some highly influential scientists died before their work was fully appreciated.

The dialogue most strongly supports the claim that Winston and Sanjay agree that:

(A) The rules that govern the awarding of Nobel Prizes should be changes so that prizes can be awarded to deceased persons

(B) The rules that govern the awarding of Nobel Prizes in scientific disciplines should be different from the rules for other Nobel Prizes

(C) Nobel Prizes in scientific disciplines should not be given in recognition of particular scientific results

(D) The evaluation of individual achievement in science is a highly subjective matter

(E) Nobel Prizes are inaccurate indicators of scientists' contributions to their disciplines

Sanjay: Those rules also stipulate that prize winners must be living, but some highly influential scientists died before their work was fully appreciated.

The dialogue most strongly supports the claim that Winston and Sanjay agree that:

(A) The rules that govern the awarding of Nobel Prizes should be changes so that prizes can be awarded to deceased persons
None of the two comment or state that a change in rules is needed

(B) The rules that govern the awarding of Nobel Prizes in scientific disciplines should be different from the rules for other Nobel Prizes
While it can be inferred very very weakly that Winston supports the rule change , but no where in his argument does Sanjay express his say on the need to have different rules. However, I still kept this option aside for consideration later

(C) Nobel Prizes in scientific disciplines should not be given in recognition of particular scientific results
Out of scope. This aspect is no where discussed in the question stem

(D) The evaluation of individual achievement in science is a highly subjective matter
Evaluation criteria is again not a part of argument. Can be eliminated
(E) Nobel Prizes are inaccurate indicators of scientists' contributions to their disciplines
Correct. Winston states that scientific results which are the work of 4 or more scientist are not suitably awarded- since prize can only be given to 3 scientists.
Sanjay states that to be eligible for the prize, the scientist must be living. He also mentions that influential scientists died before their work was fully appreciated.-> implying that some deserving scientists are not awarded
Hence the correct and the best option
