Conclusion --the mosaics of Sepphoris were very likely created by traveling artisans from some other part of the Roman empire.

If we negate E ---We get ---There was a common repertory of mosaic designs with which artisans who lived in various parts of the Roman empire were familiar.

So Sepphoris artist were also familar with how to make mosaic -- so conclusion that traveling artisians created mosaic falls apart.

Sepphoris artist if they knew how to make mosaic --- would have made them.

A. The Sepphoris mosaics are not composed exclusively of types of stones found naturally in teh Sepphoris area ---out of scope-- it does not talk abt who created
B. There is no single region to which all the species depicted in the Sepphoris mosaics are native --out of cope
C. No motifs appear in the Sepphoris mosaics that do not also appear in the mosaics of some other Roman city -out of scope
D. All of the animal figures in the Sepphoris mosiacs are readily identifiable as representation of known species ---out of scope
E. There was not a common repertory of mosaic designs with which artisans who lived in various parts of the Roman empire were familiar===correct



E - even if it states a new fact not included in the original statement, if this assumption were not true, then the "travelling" artisan conclusion would be negated.

Can someone please explain why C is wrong.
(C) No motifs appear in the Sepphoris mosaics that do not also appear in the mosaics of some other Roman city.
Is my ANT technique correct? (I am negating main clause as well as DC)
- Some motifs appear in Sepphoris mosaics that do also appear in the mosaics of some other Roman city.

This means - motifs found in Sepphoris mosaics are also foun in mosaics of other Roman city. This finding indicates that artisans from other city might have travelled to Sepphoris..

Please let me know what's wrong in my understanding and whether my ANT technique is correct.

Thanks in advance.
