+1 D

Conclusion – Lacrimae is attributed tentatively to Pescard (1400-1474)

Premise – It was based on a SINGLE treatise

Recently, several treatise have come to light which shows Pescard as the composer. This implies that Pescard must have been the composer but it is not so because these lend no support.

Here our conclusion is that “Recently found treatise do not lend any support”. We have to find the premise on which this conclusion is based?

A – It is a contender, since the treatise at that time misidentifies the composer then it is possible that Pescard is not the composer. It is doubtful in sense that we cannot be sure that ecev the treatise which mentions Pescard is wrong. Creates ambiguity.
B – It is shell type answer, if they had no evidence then it means that Pescard could and could not have been.
C – Exactly opposite answer
D – Another contender and better than A. If the later had no source but the earlier they were bound to repeat the same context, thus do not lend any support.
E – Loser, we are not discussing about 1600

:-D

Here is the gist:

Some work was tentatively attributed to Pescard because only one treatise from early 1500s did so.
Recently, many treatises from late 1500s have been found which attribute the work to Pescard.

Still, the newly found treatises lend no support.

Now, think why? The issue some time back was that only one treatise attributed that work to Pescard. Now many more later treatises have been found which also attribute that work to Pescard. Still, we are not considering them credible - why? Probably because the later treatises were based on the one treatise of early 1500. We need more original attributions to Pescard. Actually, if you think a little, you can arrive at the reason on your own. (D) fits perfectly here.

As for (A), it is not a contender here. It says that the early 1500 treatise misidentifies some composers. It doesn't tell you why the later 1500 treatises that we have found are not credible. After 'since', you are looking for a reason why the newly discovered treatises lend no support to the attribution. For the same reason, we can ignore (B) .

Lacrimae -> composed by Pescard (but not sure)

Other people saying Lacrimae is composed by Pescard by referencing the given information above is only going to be as good as what knew from the start. And that's that Pescard was only "tentatively" the composer of that piece of work.

Thus (D) fits this - the new treatises lended no support for that claim...one way is that they were all doing what we just described above, referencing a weak "source" to begin with. As a result, the conclusion will also be weak or tentative.
