Question

The author of this passage is likely to agree with which of the following?
(2007)
  1. Acceptance by the giants of a tradition is a sine qua non for a paradigm to emerge.
  2. Choice of isolation mechanism determines the type of paradigm that may emerge from a tradition.
  3. Paradigms almost entirely define a scientific tradition.
  4. Paradigms are a general representation of rules and beliefs of a scientific tradition.  


Solution

The correct option is D Paradigms are a general representation of rules and beliefs of a scientific tradition.  
Option: (d)

Answer option (a) cannot be correct because it's mentioned in the passage in the last paragraph, 2nd last line that paradigms can define only a part of normal science. Amongst all other options, (d) sounds the most perfect answer choice because in the last paragraph the author has made it clear that paradigms are more important and that they are a general representation of rules and beliefs of a scientific tradition.
