Guidebook author: The castle at Aines, France, was constructed in the sixteenth century, and was recently restored. The preservation spokesperson has affirmed that the landscaping almost exactly replicates the type of garden that would have been common in the sixteenth century. Although the style of the landscape artist who designed the garden is very similar to that of the modern landscape artist Nomura Tekkan, Tekkan's own style is directly inspired by traditional sixteenth-century French landscaping.

The evidence given would best serve to support an argument that


A. visitors to the castle will not appreciate the aesthetic decisions that went into replicating a sixteenth-century garden
B. Nomura Tekkan has designed several historically accurate replicas of sixteenth-century gardens
C. most landscaping artists today follow stylistic principles that are relatively similar to those adhered to by landscaping artists in the sixteenth century
D. the stylistic resemblance of the Aines landscaping artist to the modern artist Nomura Tekkan does not conflict with the preservation spokesperson's claim
E. the preservation spokesperson most likely told the Aines landscaper to model the garden on the work of Nomura Tekkan

B and D are close contenders. However, I would go for D because that is something which can be without doubt be inferred.

B cannot be inferred because we do not have any information that she designed accurate replicas or not.

IMO D. OA ??

In between B and D, B is a very general statement that does not flow in-line with premise.

Hence D is correct.
