technically the canvas cannot be singed and incinerated, they need to be one or the other.

For example, you cannot have a house that is destroyed and damaged, it needs to be either destroyed or damaged.

Hope that helps.

I think the OA is D.

The context of this sentence is "Most number of canvases burned in fire are signed".

Experts comment is very helpful in this scenario.
