Many scholars are puzzled about who created the seventeenth-century abridgment of Shakespeare’s Hamlet contained in the First Quarto. Two facts about the work shed light on this question. First, the person who undertook the abridgment clearly did not possess a copy of Hamlet. Second, the abridgment contains a very accurate rendering of the speeches of one of the characters, but a slipshod handling of all the other parts.

Which one of the following statements is most supported by the information above?

(A) The abridgment was prepared by Shakespeare.
(B) The abridgment was created to make Hamlet easier to produce on stage.
(C) The abridgment was produced by an actor who had played a role in Hamlet.
(D) The abridgement was prepared by a spectator of a performance of Hamlet.
(E) The abridgment was produced by an actor who was trying to improve the play.

we can eliminate A, B and E directly as these points are totally irrelevant.
Between C and D we can look that if the spectator had seen the play then he cannot give an accurate rendering of the speeches of one of the characters. hence answer is C as only the actor can give an accurate rendering of the speeches of one of the characters.
Answer is C
