A vs. E

Hello, on this passage I really struggled deciding between "A" and "E." The first time I took the test I went with "A" - but the second time I really deliberated between "A" and "E" and still cannot seem to distinguish why "E" is wrong. Thanks.

@hales and @Meredith,

The passage tells us that this view depends on the claim that every copyrightable work can be manifested in some physical form, such as a manuscript or a videotape (lines 4-7). The correct answer choice (A) a paraphrase of this statement - "expressed in physical form" is equivalent to "manifested in some physical form.". (E) refers to the right of the owner to destroy, which is listed as part of the premise that the ownership confers certain rights (lines 7-13), rather than the claim upon which the tangible-object theory depends. This is a fairly straightforward question that refers to a specific sentence in the passage, rather than asking us to make an inference.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
