Here, we must be sure to pay attention to every detail as that would be needed in order to get the logic behind the solution.

Option A -INCORRECT.
This response here looks too ''academic'' and lacking in flow. It is logical to an extent but lacks a bit of flexibility . ,More so, that the option looks similar to the question without an iota of difference. Quite unacceptable.

Option B - CORRECT.
Here, the transition from the positive position to the negative position held by the theological school of thought is seamless and breathtaking. one thing is certain here, the author has got an eye for sweet, less ambiguous use of words.

Option C - INCORRECT.
Here, the is too basic emphasis which have rendered the message tautological. One is the adjective ''Much'' which describes an excessive situation . Second is ''too'' which describes same situation of excess.

Option D - INCORRECT.
The orientation of the sentence shouldn't have created unnecessary hindrance to this option but it's slightly INCORRECT because of the reportage which should have followed the Positive-Negative order.

Option E - INCORRECT.
Here we have the same situation as in option C and D above. A critical look at the aforementioned options will give you a better outlook and understanding about the option E.
