Background: Codeex Berinensis (CB) is undated but contains clues to when it was produced
Evidence: a letter in handwriting identified as that of the fourth copyist mentions a plague that killed many people in Florence in 1148
Conclusion: CB was probably produced in that year (1148)

Strengthen

A: Irrelevant; without a link between handwriting samples of the first three copyists and conclusion, the samples play no part in this

B: Weaken; "10 months" is a range that can span from 1147 to 1148 or from 1148 to 1149 or within 1148; we cannot pinpoint the exact year the CB was produced

C: Weaken; the ease of copying suggests that we cannot believe the evidence (a letter in handwriting) provided is that of the fourth copyist

D: Strengthen; the only one outbreak of plague in Florence in the 1100s helps narrow down the possibility of plague to occur in year 1148 (+/-); not ideal, but D is better than B and is the best we have

E: Irrelevant; the number of pages becoming smaller is completely irrelevant

This question leaves me assuming that a plague was the only significant disruption and CB was produced in the year disruption took place
