Hi Ryan, thanks for the question!

This stimulus presents a dilemma. That to reach a wider audience, accept less accurate science.. Or fail to reach a wider audience and maintain rigorous science. The argument then concludes that the publications ought to stop trying to reach a wider audience. This would suggest that they value more rigorous science than reaching a large audience.

This is exactly answer choice C, while answer choice D is the opposite.

Hope this helps!

To be fair it concludes they should 'try to give up explaining' to a wide audience. So it could be that they still want to reach a wide audience just not be as explanatory to that wide audience which is clearly an option by using more metaphorical language. Is there a method to tackling vague language like this?
