READ 
This passage introducessynesthesiacs who defies the traditional notion of senses. 
ANALYZE 
(A) Correct If this is true, the synesthesiacs' response that suggest their ability to transcend the usual boundaries is no longer reliable.  Because they cannot express what they are sensing, we cannot base our conclusion on their reponses.
(B) Incorrect. The existence of the sixth sense is irrelevant. The passage concerns with the five senses known and how those of the synesthesiacs differ from those of normal people. 
(C) Incorrect. Whether their experiences form a pattern or not does not matter. 
(D) Incorrect. This may in fact strengthen the argument by providing some historical basis for synesthesia.
(E) Incorrect. Some side fact that do not really impact the argument. 
CHOOSE
Response (A) weakens the argument by invalidating the synesthesiacs responses.

IDENTIFY
This is an Assumption question. This question tests your ability to grasp technical aspects of photography and camera.
READ
The author is trying to lead us to believe that the difference in the lense resolutions don't matter.
ANALYZE
To find the answer, it is helpful to negate each choice and see whether it negatively impacts the argument.
(A)Incorrect. The definition does not really matter.
(B)Correct. This must be assumed. If this is not assumed, then the difference in resolution does matter since it determines the deficiencies of available film. We would need to worry about the resolution of the lenses when we buy a camera.
(C)Incorrect. Even if this is not true, the effect will be uniform on all the films.  It does not   weaken the argument.  
(D)Incorrect. So what? Photographic technique is outside the scope.
(E)Incorrect. Only is the key here. Even if there are many important factors beside these two, the argument may still make sense. Why?  Because those other factors may be same for all cameras and films so they are constant (fixed). 
CHOOSE
(B) is the best answer.
