My question rests with what I assess is the apparent assumption needed regarding the relationship between temperature and molecular motion in the retina in order to land on answer choice B. While the stimulus does say, "The amount of this molecular motion is directly proportional to the temperature of the retina," it does not say whether higher or lower temperature increases or decreases this molecular motion. To make such an assumption, I had assessed would require additional outside/new information.
While some of the other answer choices are incorrect because they were classified as bringing in new information, is the knowledge that molecules are more excited by higher temperatures and less so under lower temperatures considered "common sense knowledge" or covered under the umbrella of the stimulus?
