Hello Guys.
Could you check this question and give a clear explanation?
Need more explanation for #B especially. (answer is A)

Some authors have challenged the common perception of the Italian Renaissance as a time of creativity and positive change. For example, the Dutch historian Johan Huizinga argued that the Renaissance caused the death of the Latin language due to its insistence on using the classical form of Latin.

It can most reasonably be inferred from the passage above that

A. Latin was still a living language during the Renaissance.
B. The death of the Latin language was a negative effect of the Renaissance.
C. The classical form of Latin was preferred during the Renaissance.
D. Other forms of Latin had been corrupted by the time of the Renaissance.
E. Classical Latin is a lesser form of Latin than that spoken during the Renaissance.

Hi milkybar ... You should not create a post for a question which has already been discussed. You should post on the same forum: https://gmatclub.com/forum/some-authors ... l#p1926628 and ask for further explanation or expert reply.
You can PM me for further discussion. Topic is locked.

Thanks.
