15. In the course of her researches, a historian recently
found two documents mentioning the same person,
Erich Schnitzler. One, dated May 3, 1739, is a
record of Schnitzlerâ€™s arrest for peddling without a
license. The second, undated, is a statement by
Schnitzler asserting that he has been peddling off
and on for 20 years.

The facts above best support which of the following
conclusions?
(A) Schnitzler started peddling around 1719.
(B) Schnitzler was arrested repeatedly for peddling.
(C) The undated document was written before 1765.
(D) The arrest record was written after the undated
document.
(E) The arrest record provides better evidence that
Schnitzler peddled than does the undated
document.

I don't like this question, all answer choiced are dubious

A, B are clearly out

Consider this situation:

Erich Schnitzler peddled in 1734-1739
Erich Schnitzler was arrested in 1739
Erich Schnitzler peddled in 1755-1770
In 1770 Erich Schnitzler writes a document asserting that he peddled ON AND OFF for 20 years (and he tells the truth!)

This eliminates C and D unless you know when Erich Schnitzler died

E is the only ACCEPTABLE choice (by no means a good one)

C is the OA. I don't like the question either.
