A small collection of copper-alloy kitchen implements was found in an abandoned Roman-era well . Beneath them was a cache of coins, some of which dated to 375 A.D. The implements, therefore, were dropped into the well no earlier than 375 A.D.

Which one of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?

(A) The coins used in the Roman Empire often remained in circulation for many decades.
(B) The coins were found in a dense cluster that could not have been formed by coins slipping through an accumulation oflarger objects.
(C) The coins had far more value than the kitchen implements did.
(D) The items in the well were probably thrown there when people evacuated the area and would have been retrieved if the people had returned.
(E) Items of jewelry found beneath the coins were probably made around 300 A.D.

Which one of the following, if true, most strengthens the argument?

(A) The coins used in the Roman Empire often remained in circulation for many decades. - 180 option, it acutually weaken the argument
(B) The coins were found in a dense cluster that could not have been formed by coins slipping through an accumulation of larger objects. -Bingo! if the coins could not reach the base, if dropped after the implements, then it is clear that either the implements belong to the same era or later than that and in no way implements can be earlier than 375 A.D.
(C) The coins had far more value than the kitchen implements did.- out of focus
(D) The items in the well were probably thrown there when people evacuated the area and would have been retrieved if the people had returned.- Neutral, does nothing to the statement
(E) Items of jewelry found beneath the coins were probably made around 300 A.D.- cunning player :-D , but even if the jewelry belong to 300 AD we in no way can say anything about the implements

Pre-thinking-> Coins didn't slip through the objects
Question type-Strengthen

B. Inline with our pre-thinking.If coins didn't slip through, that means either the implements are of the same era or later than 375 AD. Correct
C. Irrelevant
D. So what
E. not concerned about the time period of the jewelry.
