I agree. I posted C initially. I think I skimmed choice E. I need to break this habit of skimming the last choice.

You have to wait for a long time buddy. The owner of the question is not coming back soon to enlighten you with the OA and OE.

This argument is all abount how to increase the inductive probability of an argument. If E is not inferred/assumed, the conclusion is hardly supported by premise.

Must be E. D is incorrect in that just because manuscript L must have a commentary of M, does not mean that M is NEVER UNACCOMPANIED by commentary because it has appeared in other works and COULD be unaccompanied. stem doesnt support D

Using POE:
A. Nothing in the stem is conclusive about EuripidesÂ´ best-known works.
B. Not supported by the stem.
D. Not necessarily true.
E. The stem tacitly indicates that the 2nd group doesnÂ´t appear in other medieval manuscripts. Electra belongs to this group, for which no commentary has been written => no commentary was written for Electra in ancient times.

E.

Torn between C and E.
Would have picked E for the reference to "extant medieval manuscript"
