### HideShow timer Statistics

Tina: For centuries oceans and human eccentricity have been linked in literary and artistic imagination. Such linkage is probably due to European Renaissance practice of using ships as asylums for the socially undesireable.

Sergio: No. Oceans have always been viewd as mysterious and unpredictable-qualities that people have invariably associated with eccentricity.

Tina's and Sergio's statements lend the most support to the claim that they disagree about which one of the following statements?

A) Eccentric humans were considered socially undesirable during the European Renaissance

B) Oceans have always been viewd as mysterious and unpredictable

C) The linkage between oceans and eccentricity explains the European Renaissance custom of using ships as asylums

D) People have never atributed the same qualities to oceans and eccentrics

E) The linkage between oceans and eccentricity predates the European Renaissance

I think it is C..
First one Ocean is compared for socially undesirables whereas the second one denies that

Tricky to me! I too think C is correct. But not very confident.

Can someone explain.

To me,
Tina argues that because ships were used as asylums during european rennaisance, oceans are linked to eccentricity. But Sergio counter argues that oceans were always considered un-predictable. This unpredictable character is attributed to human eccentricity.

Looks to me like the case

If Tina: if A and B, then C and D
Sergio: if A and C, then B and D.

C.

The similar qualities of the oceans and humans led to using one for other according to Tine and not according to Sergio. So this is the point they will probably disagree about

I chose C at first

however, i will attempt to explain the OA.

T-For Centuries, oceans and human eccentricity have been linked...
European Renaisssance probably caused such linkage

S-Nah-oceans have always been linked to eccentricty

They are disagreeing about the time when they were linked

A-OS, stated by Tina but not disputed by Sergio
B-OS, Stated by Sergio but but not disputed by tina
C-opposite of what Tina says, however not disputed by Sergio. Not disputing about cause, they are disputing about time.
D-opposite of what both say
E is best
