According to a 1990 law, Native American tribes are entitled to artifacts or remains removed from their lands, provided that the tribes can show a direct archaeological, geological, or historical link to the artifacts. Recently, the Umatilla tribes of Oregon and Washington laid claim to a set of skeletal remains more than 500 years old.

Each of the following, if true, strengthens the Umatilla`s claim to the remains EXCEPT:


A. Tools found with the remains are similar to tools known to be used by the ancestors of the Umatilla.

B. DNA evidence from the remains shows a direct link to current members of the Umatilla.

C. The Umatilla claim that the remains of all native peoples deserve the respect of a traditional reburial ceremony.

D. The remains were found in close proximity to an excavation of an ancient Umatilla settlement.

E. The remains were buried with artifacts similar to those found with other Umatilla remains.

A. Tools found with the remains are similar to tools known to be used by the ancestors of the Umatilla. --> Strengthens

B. DNA evidence from the remains shows a direct link to current members of the Umatilla. --> Strengthens

C. The Umatilla claim that the remains of all native peoples deserve the respect of a traditional reburial ceremony. --> Correct, it does not provide any support to the conclusion, how does a claim from the tribe be any link to the artifacts ?

D. The remains were found in close proximity to an excavation of an ancient Umatilla settlement. --> Strengthens

E. The remains were buried with artifacts similar to those found with other Umatilla remains. --> Strengthens

The claim made by Umatilla isn't based on any evidence that supports direct archaeological, geological, or historical link to the artifacts. C presents only a hollow claim.
