The extreme case:
If 1739 was the first year in which Erich began doing that activity, so 1759 is the year in which he wrote the undated document. Therefore, that document was written in 1759 or before that year.

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 Schnitzler’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. From the stimulus, on combining last two statements, probable period of peddling could be 1719 -1739 or 1739-1759, so starting time could either be 1719 or 1739. Option could be kept as a contender
(B) Schnitzler was arrested repeatedly for peddling. Nothing in the stimulus mentions repeated arrest. Out of scope
(C) The undated document was written before 1765. From explanation in statement 1, maximum end date for peddling based on two statements would be 1759 (1739+20), thus undated statement is written definitely before 1765. Correct answer11
(D) The arrest record was written after the undated document. no mentions of relative dates of two statements, thus option is incorrect
(E) The arrest record provides better evidence that Schnitzler peddled than does the undated document.out of scope. no mention of relative importance in stimulus
