It can be inferred from the passage that the author's supplies methods for accurately calculating the results of conclusion that Einstein's approach is "erroneous" diverse experiments, especially with minute particles. The might have to be modified because predictions of quantum mechanics, however, give only the (A) it is theoretically possible to generate plausible probability of an event, not a deterministic statement of theories with hidden parameters within them whether or not the event will occur. Because of this (B) some experimental tests of Einstein's theory do probabilism, Einstein remained strongly dissatisfied with not disconfirm the hidden-parameter theory the theory throughout his life, though he did not maintain of quantum mechanics that quantum mechanics is wrong. Rather, he held that it is (C) it is possible for a theory to have hidden incomplete: in quantum mechanics the motion of a particle parameters and yet be probabilistic must be described in terms of probabilities, he argued, only (D) traditional quantum mechanics has not yet been because some parameters that determine the motion have used to analyze all of the phenomena to not been specified.
