I don't get how B supports hypothesis stronger then C. Coins could not be found for various reasons (tsunami). Histories mentioning earthquakes seem to support scientists' (not historians) theory.

The hypothesis is that there was destruction of Kourion due to earthquakes..
They already know that earthquakes occured around that time period. The question is whether there was destruction because of it. Restating it does not add any value. So another evidence of destruction is that there were no coins minted after the earthquake.

Easy B.
B is the ONLY one which reiterates that Kourion was destroyed by an earthquake in 365 AD.

Btw... are the stimuli on G-day really this short??

A and E weaken the statement; D does nothing; C just restates the earthquake fact. B wins hands down.
