Archaeologists seeking the location of a legendary siege and destruction of a city are excavating in several possible places, including a middle and a lower layer of a large mound. The bottom of the middle layer contains some pieces of pottery of type 3, known to be from a later period than the time of the destruction of the city, but the lower layer does not.


Which of the following hypotheses is best supported by the evidence above?
(A) The lower layer contains the remains of the city where the siege took place.
(B) The legend confuses stories from two different historical periods.
(C) The middle layer does not represent the period of the siege.
(D) The siege lasted for a long time before the city was destroyed.
(E) The pottery of type 3 was imported to the city by traders.

(A) The lower layer contains the remains of the city where the siege took place.
The argument does NOT provide any information about the lower layer. This statement can not be supported by the evidence.

(B) The legend confuses stories from two different historical periods.
Here is a scope-shift. The fact that the middle layer containts information about a specific age is a FACT and an evidence. It's not affected by what the Archaeologists are looking for.

(C) The middle layer does not represent the period of the siege. Exactly, if the middle layer contains pottery from another period, after the time of the city distruction, then it difnitely does NOT represent the period of the siege. By Logic, the siege comes first, then comes the distruction of the city.

(D) The siege lasted for a long time before the city was destroyed.
While this could be a possibility explaining the evidence in the argument, yet it can not be supported by the argument.

(E) The pottery of type 3 was imported to the city by traders.
Irrelevant and out of scope. Imported by traders ? where are we getting this from ?
