Summary
Traditionally people believed only classical Euclidean geometry could correctly represent the universe mathematically. However, scientists now believe that nonEuclidean geometrical representations of the universe are much more useful. In fact, nonEuclidean representations underly the cosmological theory most widely accepted by scientists.
Strongly Supported Conclusions
Modern scientists do not believe that classical Euclidean geometry is the only method for representing the universe mathematically.
A
Scientists who use Euclidean geometry are likely to believe that progress in mathematical theory results in progress in natural science.
This answer is unsupported. We don’t know from the stimulus anything about the beliefs of scientists who subscribe to Euclidean theory. We only know that nowadays most scientists subscribe to a nonEuclidean theory.
B
Scientists generally do not now believe that classical Euclidean geometry is uniquely capable of giving a correct mathematical representation of the universe.
This answer is strongly supported. We know from the stimulus that modern scientists believe that nonEuclidean representations are more useful than classical Euclidean theory.
C
NonEuclidean geometry is a more complete way of representing the universe than is Euclidean geometry.
This answer is unsupported. We don’t know from the stimulus which theory more completely represents the universe. We only know that the nonEuclidean theory is more useful for developing certain areas of scientific theory.
D
An accurate scientific theory cannot be developed without the discovery of a uniquely correct way of mathematically representing the universe.
This answer is unsupported. The stimulus does not conclude that the nonEuclidean theory is uniquely correct. We only know that most scientists have found it more useful than classical Euclidean theory.
E
The usefulness of a mathematical theory is now considered by scientists to be more important than its mathematical correctness.
This answer is unsupported. We don’t know what qualities scientists think are more important in any theory.
