Further evidence bearing on Jamison’s activities must have come to light. On the basis of previously available evidence alone, it would have been impossible to prove that Jamison was a party to the fraud, and Jamison’s active involvement in the fraud has now been definitively established.
The pattern of reasoning exhibited in the argument above most closely parallels that exhibited in which one of the following?
(A) Smith must not have purchased his house within the last year. He is listed as the owner of that house on the old list of property owners and anyone on the old list could not have purchased his or her property within the last year.
(B) Turner must not have taken her usual train to Nantes today. Had she done so, she could not have been in Nantes until this afternoon, but she was seen having coffee in Nantes at 11 o’clock this morning.
(C) Nofris must have lied when she said that she had not authorized the investigation. There is no doubt that she did authorize it, and authorizing and investigation is not something anyone is likely to have forgotten.
(D) Waugh must have known that last night’s class was canceled. Waugh was in the library yesterday and it would have been impossible for anyone in the library not to have seen the cancellation notices.
(E) LaForte must have deeply resented being passed over for promotion. He maintains otherwise, but only someone who felt badly treated would have made the kind of remark LaForte made at yesterday’s meeting.

"definitively established" is the keyword.
Last evidence Vs Today's (recent) evidence ---> this is the stimulus.

A, C, D and E - talk about old evidence Not today's (recent) evidence. Second all talk about probability - compared to sighting someone at a particular time (as in B) which is a "confirmed" proof.

she was seen having coffee in Nantes at 11 o’clock -----> Proof

Probabilities NOT proof--------->
A : could not have purchased
C : likely to have forgotten
D : not to have seen the cancellation notices
E : would have made the kind of remark LaForte made at yesterday’s meeting

IMO : B

B it is.

agree with nusmavrik.

"established" is the keyword.

all other options except B are probabilities or talking about past.

I think there is another reason for B. In the question, there is a "if A then B; now NO B" structure. As we can see: " if we use previous evidence, then it is impossible to prove fraud; now we can prove fraud". This argument is parellel with choice B, in which it says: "if she takes usual train, then she is unable to come until this afternoon; now she comes before afternoon"

So B.

I have a general question regarding the questions posted in the 700-level forum. Who is actually deciding the level of the question,is it the poster or the moderator? Just concerned about those people who are practicing these questions thinking that these are 700-level questions,which may be TRUE.But if someone is not able to solve the question and posting it in this forum then it should alarm us.
Please don't feel offended by my post as I just want that nobody be misguided in any way.

This is an old questiona nd I half guessed it to correct answer.

My reasoning was ordering the sequence leading to conclusion which has been "definitely established"
Any answer choices where this "definitely established" can be questioned were eliminated leaving two.
Among those two I zeroed on one that shows a conclusion drawn from 3rd party witness.
Problem is it took me 3 minutes to solve this which in real exam will be a bummer.

So gurus, is there any better method to solve this question under 2 minute mark ?
