Dear Ankur,

The conclusion of the argument is that the camp probably dates to no later than 1630. The reason provided is that no European trade goods were found at the site at that time even though the European traders were fairly active then.

If C is true, then whatever goods reached the area via the European traders (who were active 1620 onward) would have been preserved as much as possible. So, if anything, these goods would have been preserved until far beyond 1630. Also, these goods should have shown up during the excavation and subsequent radiocarbon dating -- but they did not. So this option would only weaken the argument.

Option B seems too extreme to me...

Any insights on what is wrong with C?



I know you need not worry about the answer now :-D but here is my take

Reason why C may be wrong is that the first European trade goods would have been valuable and preserved as much as possible from Loss or Destruction meaning that no matter what because of its value the goods would have preserved or kept safely...so finding them at excavation sites is less likely...so it does not help us strengthen the conclusion....
