Let's take a look at (B).

(B) says, "Scientists generally do not now believe that classical
Euclidean geometry is uniquely capable of giving a correct
mathematical representation of the universe."

(B) tells us that most scientists believe that a non-Euclidian
representation of the universe is something that's possible. This
statement is supported by the strong claim in the stimulus when it
states that scientists think that a representation of the universe
using non-Euclidian geometry is more useful for some areas of
scientific theory. Thus, (B) is the correct answer choice, as it's the
answer choice that's most strongly supported b the stimulus.

Does this make sense? Let us know if you have any other questions!
