### HideShow timer Statistics

History textbooks frequently need to be revised.

The reasons for this are clear: new discoveries of documents and remains, the discovery of mistaken inferences in prior histories, the discovery of previously unnoticed relationships among data, and the application of hitherto undiscovered principles of natural science all may indicate inadequacies in current history texts.

Any of these considerations may require that the past be reinterpreted in a manner that is new and more illuminating.

Which one of the following can be inferred from the argument in the passage?

(A) The interpretation of historical events is affected by natural science.

(B) The past is constantly renewed because of illuminating
reinterpretations.

(C) History books are outdated as soon as they are written.

(D) Natural scientists also function as historians.

(E) Historiansâ€™ mistaken inferences are caused by unnoticed relationships among data.
