I selected E for this question. I now realize E is incorrect because the author does not question a judge’s ability to disallow leading questions; the author indicates this practice alone does not prevent the effect of leading questions on witness testimony.
I do not understand the first part of answer choice D, however. What other factors tend to increase the eyewitness’s susceptibility? I thought the author was demonstrating that leading questions outside of the courtroom increase the possibility of fallacious testimony, which current methods of preventing leading questions do not address. So in my mind, no new factors were introduced to compound the effects of leading questions in the courtroom on witness testimony.
