I though it was a tough question... but CR inferences and conclusions are the least favorite for me :cry:

I was looking for some conclusion that ties Electra to other premises...

A. Not true... the argument says "some of the best works" OUT

B. This gives us the reason, which we know nothing about OUT

C. We don't know that... all we know is that commentaries were not included in the set for the 8 plays, doesn't mean that they weren't written OUT

D. We don't know this... it doesn't matter how Medea appears... in this set it is accompanied by commentaries... somewhere else it may not OUT

E. By POE it is the only one left... I think this is it... I was looking for something about Electra and this one seems to be ok... although I don't like "any"

E

L contains 18 extant tragedies written by X writer.

10 (Including Medea) are with commentaries and appear in other medieval manuscripts.
8 (Including Electra) are without commentaries

Conclusion is:
Electra is not accompanied by commentaries. So it may be C or E.
C makes the scope wide because of "in ancient times. ".
E is good because of "does not appear accompanied" and also remains in scope "any extant medieval manuscript."

Jus readin the Q makes it luk very tough, but actually.....very simple E

A little tussle between B and E, but B goes a littl out of scope saying that no commentaries were written at all about Electra, thus keeping us with E

OA is E, which I initially didn't agree with.
I didn't like the "any" part in choice E, either.
But in this context, "any" seems to indicate only those 18, among which 10 is with commentary, and 8 is without commentary.

Electra is one of the 8s, so no commentary is provided from "any of those 18s".
Other choices are not directly stated.
This is my poor re-contemplation.
