Hey Queen of Miami, this is for you. The question what would the author agree? That the group think doesn't have beneficial effects on the workings of the group (E) versus there are unique reasons for groupthink (B)
Hmm that jogs my memory somewhat, but my recollection is not conclusive -- I might have put something different. Who knows... However, out of the two you listed I would definitely say (E) is correct. Look at my paraphrase above; groupthink has three characteristics and they are all negative -- nothing good comes out of it. Also, it said the exact causes or reasons for group think are not known.
I couldn't see how the author would say group think has no beneficialeffects so I went with (B). If the exact causes of groupthink are unknown does that rule out that there may be underlying unique causes?
