DISCUSSION: The main point of passage B is that we don’t know how accurate fingerprint analysis is. There are also no objective standards for fingerprint analysis.
The author does not say how we ought to use fingerprints in court, if at all.
- Passage B never mentions how we use fingerprint evidence in trials.
- Same as A. The author of passage B never says that fingerprint evidence has no use in criminal trials. It’s just not 100% effective. Perhaps it can be useful, even if it is not definitive on it’s own.
- Look at the first two sentences of the final paragraph of passage B. The author doesn’t say what the error rate is. He said we don’t know the error rate because we haven’t done many studies.
- CORRECT. This sums things up. We lack objective standards for fingerprint analysis, and we don’t know what the error rate is.
- The author didn’t say whether legal scholars are aware of the problems with fingerprint analysis.
