In the course of her researches, a historian recently found two documents mentioning the same person, Erich Schnitzler. One, dated May 3, 1739, is a record of Schnitzlerís arrest for peddling without a license. The second, undated, is a statement by Schnitzler asserting that he has been peddling off and on for 20 years.
The facts above best support which of the following conclusions?
(A) Schnitzler started peddling around 1719.
(B) Schnitzler was arrested repeatedly for peddling.
(C) The undated document was written before 1765.
(D) The arrest record was written after the undated document.
(E) The arrest record provides better evidence that Schnitzler peddled than does the undated document.
this question is stunning..
i will also go with C, is it correct.
Option A : how can we say clearly about the dates ?
Option B: in the above arugement where this is mentioned, it is only mentioned he has been peddling off and on for 20 years but was he arrested ? also it used strong words like "repeatedly".
Option C : if you add 20 years to the dated document it will be less than 1765 so it might be correct
Option D : no garuntee on this .. it can be before also
Option E: both the statement tell he is peddling
so by my reasoning C should be the answer . if this could have come in actual test i could have selected C but not sure whether this is correct or not.
