Supposedly is used to trick the test-takers I guess. Supposedly is close to presumably. Supposed is not correct here.

Secondly, it needs to compare age. X is 600 years as old as Y doesnot make sense.

B is correct :lol:

"Older" is what we want. So okay, between (B) and (D).

In this case, we want (B). The problem with (D) is the word "their"---who is "their"?

The Vikings didn't OWN the first North American colony so you cannot use "their"--you have to use "the" to say it without any implication of ownership.

This question can easily be split and solved

1st between supposed and supposedly

now see the sentence which it is going to modify 'first North American colony'--> adjective 'first'-->noun 'colony'

Here we need to use 'supposedly' to modify fist (adjective)

c and d out

let see among a,b,e

A. as old as the supposedly -wrong (because we can say someone is 6 year as old to somebody)
B. older than the supposedly -correct
E as old as its first supposedly-as explained above

Hope this helps :)
