A medieval manuscript called L contains all eighteen extant tragedies by the Greek playwright Euripides. Of these, ten called the “select plays,” are accompanied in L by ancient commentaries and also appear in other medieval manuscripts; this group includes some of Euripides’ best-known works, including the Medea. The other eight, which appear in alphabetical order, without commentary. The Electra is one of the alphabeticals.

Which of the following can be reliably concluded on the basis of the
Statements given?

A. Only Euripides’ best-known works are accompanied by ancient commentaries in extant medieval manuscripts.
B. The select plays are accompanied by ancient commentaries because they were the best known of Euripides’ works.
C. No commentaries were written about Euripides’ Electra in ancient times.
D. Euripides’ Medea never appears in medieval manuscripts unaccompanied by ancient commentary.
E. Euripides’ Electra does not appear accompanied by a commentary in any extant medieval manuscript.

IMO E

From the paragraph, it can be inferred that electra never appeared in any other medieval manuscript (or else it would be part of the 'select play'). Thus, if it never appeared in any other manuscript, it could not possibly be accompanied by commentaries.

This question was answered somewhere else.
