15. Thought Id post this, answer makes sense, but still missed it.

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.

The facts above best support which of the following conclusions?
(A) Schnitzler started peddling around 1719. can't deduce this from the passage
(B) Schnitzler was arrested repeatedly for peddling. can't deduce this
(C) The undated document was written before 1765. correct, lets assume that 1739 was the first year he started peddling, 1739+20 = 1759. The letter has to be between 1739 and 1759 since it mentions that he "has been" peddling for 20 years,
(D) The arrest record was written after the undated document. insufficient...
(E) The arrest record provides better evidence that Schnitzler peddled than does the undated document. it doesn't, the policeman could have been lying :lol:

[color=#FF00BF]C is for me not correct, b/c there is many options happening if you assume that "the first year he started peddling" is later than 1765[/color]

(D) The arrest record was written after the undated document. insufficient...
(E) The arrest record provides better evidence that Schnitzler peddled than does the undated document. it doesn't, the policeman could have been lying :lol:



B is my choice

First document: Any peddling without a license... he was arrested.
Second document: He was peddling off and on for 20 years.
Must be True: He was arrested off and on for 20 years

i thought about C as well, but settled on E.

In C, who is to say that it was 20 years straight ? i didnt know if i could make that assumption....if it is valid to do so though, then yes, i agree with C since in the worst case, he started peddling in 1739...

It is not mentioned whether he was arrested before writing letters. So, we cant conclude the year for 2nd letter. But, it is mentioned that he paddled for 20 yrs and in the first premise, dated letter says that he was arrested. So, I think it should be D as OA - The arrest record was written after the undated document.

Please let me know where I am missing :? ?
