I had a really hard time with this question, even after I went back to it untimed. I got caught trying to figure out the meaning of the word posited
Even when I tried to read for structure I couldn't understand what the structure was without the definition of the word.
Any tips for the next time I get caught?
Ignore it. Put a big red X through the word every time it appears; now you can focus on structure.
It's just exactly the same as doing algebra; we can balance equations by removing like terms. If, for example, "posit" means "banana," then the argument says that one approach is to believe that only entities bananaed by powerful theories are real (THAT SOUNDS DIRTY). But since most theories contain ideas that are only theoretically bananaed, we can't take that approach.
Well, that assumes that theoretical bananas cannot be real.
See how that works? There's a gap in the reasoning, and we prove the claim is true by filling that gap.
