HOW D?


Hi Bob2018,

Here is question with all the choices.

2. The passage mentions each of the following as a factor affecting current maps of Native American lands EXCEPT

(A) United States government policy
(B) non-Native Americans’ perspective on Native Americans
(C) origins of the information utilized to produce the maps
(D) changes in ways that tribal lands are used
(E) the reason for producing the maps

The only possible answer is D.
Through out the passage various factors have been discussed but changes in the ways that tribal lands are used are not discussed. This inforamtion is not useful to draw out map if we just concerned to show that lands where Native Americans reside.

If you some other you can ask me .

Warm Regards,
Arvind

I didn't understand question 3:

3. The passage suggests which of the following about most existing maps of Native American lands?

(A) They do not record the migrations of Native American tribes.
(B) They have been preserved primarily because of their connection with treaties involving land transfers.
(C) They tend to reflect archaeological evidence that has become outdated.
(D)They tend to be less accurate when they are based on oral reports than when they are based on written documents.
(E) They are not based primarily on the mapmakers??? first-hand observations of Native American lands.

I answered A,
Regarding E they mentioned in the passage " the accuracy of these maps ...interpretive abilities " so I understand that E is no good because of these...

Thanks for the help!

For #3, the operative portion is at the end of the first paragraph:

Most existing maps of Native American lands are reconstructions that are based largely on archaeology, oral reports, and evidence gathered from observers' accounts in letter, diaries, and official reports; accordingly, the accuracy of these maps is especially dependent on the mapmakers' own interpretive abilities.

This tells you that it wasn't a first-hand observation by the mapmaker of the land, but rather the mapmaker reconstructing some other observers' accounts (from letters, diaries, etc. - those aren't firsthand experience with the land, but instead taken from someone else's firsthand experience). So E has direct support in this sentence.

With A, note that the only place that "migrations" is mentioned is in the second paragraph, which leads with "many existing maps" - the question asks about "most existing maps" so we can't really draw conclusions about "most" anywhere past that first paragraph where we know we're dealing with more than 50% of maps. This is where their precise language in asking the question is so important...when I see "most existing maps" I'm hyper-focused on "where are they talking about most and where are they talking about some/many/etc. that we can't conclude fits "most."

Hi,

The argument states that "Most existing maps of Native American lands are reconstructions that are based largely on archaeology, oral reports, and evidence gathered from observers' accounts in letter, diaries, and official reports; accordingly, the accuracy of these maps is especially dependent on the mapmakers' own interpretive abilities.". Option C is incorrect because we are given no reason to believe that the maps archaeological evidence has become outdated. It merely says that these maps were pretty much remakings of the already existing evidence such as "archaeology, oral reports, and evidence gathered from observers' accounts in letter, diaries, and official reports". Option E on the other hand can be inferred because these remakes were not based on their first hand experience. Rather, they took the existing materials with prior observations and remade them.

Hope this helps!
