We need to understand the meaning of the sentence too to eliminate the options here.

A) for subjects who could use thought transference to identify a card in the dealer's hand
Joseph did not claim the proofs for the subjects.

B) for a card in the dealer's hand to be identified by subjects with thought transference
Joseph did not claim proof for a card.

C) of subjects able to identify with thought transference a card in the dealer's hand
Joseph did not claim proof of subjects.

D) that subjects could identify a card in the dealer's hand by using thought transference
Correct

E) that subjects are capable to use thought transference for identifying a card in the dealer's hand
Correct idiom is capable of not capable to.

Correct Option: D

Hi,

I have one question here: how can we determine which the intended meaning is? I mean, it is also reasonable to think that Joseph was trying to justify the existence of people who can identify the card by using thought transference, right? So how can we confirm that it is not really the intended meaning of the sentence?
