LR question preptest 49

Human behavior cannot be fully understood without inquiring into nonphysical aspects of persons.  As evidence of this, I submit the following: suppose that we had a complete scientific account of the physical aspects of some particular human action -- every neurological, physiological, and environmental event involved.  Even with all that we would obviously still not truly comprehend the action or know why it occurred. 

Flaw:

B) The purported evidence that it cites in support of its conclusion presumes that the conclusion is true

C) It concludes that a proposition must be true merely on the grounds that it has not been proven false.

EDIT: answer is B, not C

can someone please explain the intuition behind both answer choices?>
