In the course of her researches, a historian recently
found two documents mentioning the same person,
Erich Schnitzler. One, dated May 3, 1739, is a
record of Schnitzler’s arrest for peddling without a
license. The second, undated, is a statement by
Schnitzler asserting that he has been peddling off
and on for 20 years.

The facts above best support which of the following
conclusions?
(A) Schnitzler started peddling around 1719.
(B) Schnitzler was arrested repeatedly for peddling.
(C) The undated document was written before 1765.
(D) The arrest record was written after the undated
document.
(E) The arrest record provides better evidence that
Schnitzler peddled than does the undated
document.

A) this cannot be concluded for sure because he might have been caught after 20 years of peddling
B) This cannot be concluded for sure because there is only one record of arrest
D) What is he was caught the second time on May 3 1739. First time he might have been just warned.
E) May be and May not be depends on who is looking at it.

C) is correct because if you add 20 years to 1739 you will get 1759 < 1765
