So what's wrong with E that should have allowed you to confidently eliminate it, and thus comfortably settle on the one remaining contender that you did not fully understand? It's that the issue isn't that Zachary doesn't understand the moral obligations of artists. That's not his problem. And it's not that his understanding is too narrow, but perhaps too broad? His problem was probably better prephrased along the lines of "Zacahry's ideas about moral obligations can lead to an unsolvable contradiction." Or maybe "if we follow Zachary's, we may be faced with an impossible conundrum."
And that's pretty much what "untenable" means - a position that cannot be maintained or defended, because it is too problematic or not possible.
Final bit of advice: whenever you encounter challenging vocab on the LSAT, add that word to a list and then look it up! If it shows up in one question, it will likely show up in another, and they do love to push us in that way!
